WHAT

Culture Club connects people to museums, galleries, libraries and other cultural venues in a fun and easy way. Through Culture Club, we are inviting people to get involved, broadening the reach of culture in Dublin to as many Dubliners as possible.

Our Project Manager will accompany groups and individuals from all over Dublin to a range of Cultural venues throughout the year. Culture Club begins with a tour of an exhibition, given by a tour guide, often the curator of the exhibition, and ends with a Tea & Chats session. Our Tea & Chats are facilitated discussions where people get the opportunity to reflect on their experience, learn from and connect with one another. Where possible we invite groups to Culture Clubs we feel will be most meaningful and relevant to them. This is a special chance to meet new people and experience cultural places in a relaxed way and is a great opportunity for us to learn from these experiences.

Our hope is that Culture Club continues to grow over the coming months and years to become a regular part of Dublin’s Cultural life. If you would like to find out more about Culture Club email us at cultureclub@dublinscultureconnects.ie
