South Central




“Glorious moments of everyday poetry”

Working with the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), the Chester Beatty Library, and Dublin City Council, The National Neighbourhood projects in Dublin South Central are considering how they can address complex challenges such as the links between health, poverty and housing, by supporting resilient communities that have survived for decades. Inspired by conversations, casual banter and being out and about in the area, book clubs, choirs, lullabies and visual art are being considered as places from which many more glorious moments of everyday poetry, which bring beauty to lives well lived in Dublin South Central, can grow.
