In collaboration with the National Museum of Ireland and Dublin City Council, The National Neighbourhood in Dublin North West will have a particular focus on the treasures of the area, in terms of its people, history and environment. The starting point is always the locals themselves, their stories and special interests, garnered from conversations in the community. The project has already begun in Cabra and the Deaf Village with participants from age 5 to 75. Visual Arts and music are the first artforms to feature. With the centenary year of women’s suffrage coming up in 2018, women in history will be one of the themes of the project.
