CULTURE DATE WITH DUBLIN 8
Culture Date with Dublin 8 is a new neighbourhood initiative, which took place for the first time in 2017. It aims to celebrate Dublin 8’s rich cultural, historical and architectural heritage while encouraging people who are living, working and visiting the area to explore what is on their doorstep.
This initiative offers a year-long programme of family friendly events, activities and workshops during a weekend-long festival in May and a host of free events that take place across the calendar year. Culture Date with Dublin 8 also offers a workspace engagement scheme helping to connect people who work in the area with their local cultural heritage.
This collaborative project and programme of events aims to connect with and amplify the wider efforts being made to regenerate the area, highlighting all the great things there are to see and do in Dublin 8 to locals and visitors alike. This project aims to put Dublin 8 on the map as a unique, sought-after, cultural destination, connecting communities to their national heritage and cultural institutions and establishing a new platform for cultural, historical and educational organisations to work together.

Culture Date with Dublin 8 is supported by Dublin City Council, Fáilte Ireland, The OPW, IMMA - Irish Museum of Modern Art, Glasnevin Trust, St Patrick's Cathedral, Christchurch Cathedral, The National Archives, Marsh's Library and The Edward Worth Library.
