Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown

Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018-2022

A unique and culturally rich part of the country, the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown area is home to a vibrant creative community of writers, artists, performers and a host of dedicated participants in local arts, creative and cultural activities.

With the Creative Ireland programme centred around the themes of identity, culture and citizenship, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown’s part in the initiative’s five-year journey began with extensive and ambitious plans in 2017. Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has long invested in the area’s cultural capital and over the years has commissioned and produced an array of festivals, exhibitions, residencies, school projects and public art programmes to grow and sustain local arts development.
