The National Neighbourhood


The National Neighbourhood

The National Neighbourhood spans the Dublin City Council region, and for the first time brings together the Public Libraries, the area offices, the City Arts Office and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, in partnership with National Cultural Institutions (The Abbey Theatre, The National Museum of Ireland, The National Library of Ireland, The National Gallery of Ireland, The National Concert Hall, The Chester Beatty Library, The National Archives and The Irish Museum of Modern Art).

The core value is the public and cultural community working together, connecting Dubliners in significant ways on projects that are relevant to their expressed concerns. Each project has evolved from a series of conversations and are harnessing the appetites of particular groups for cultural engagement. The National Neighbourhood project has lit the City and connected Dubliners to their communities, and artists to cultural institutions since September 2016, creating excitement and engaging people.



Dublin’s Culture Connects : The National Neighbourhood is a partnership between Dublin City Arts Office, Dublin Public Libraries, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane; Dublin’s National Cultural Institutions; artists, and community groups from across Dublin City.
