Dublin City
Culture and Creativity Plan 2017

World-renowned for its captivating cultural heritage, UNESCO City of Literature status and ever-evolving creative nous, Dublin City’s Creative Ireland Culture and Creativity Plan will see the city and its citizens more connected than ever. Culture is at the very heart of Dublin’s identity and quality of life, its presence is central to making a vibrant city that is an appealing destination for tourists, the city’s residents and its creative industries.

This plan is Dublin City’s first step in Creative Ireland’s five-year journey focused on identity, culture and citizenship. A wide range of projects and initiatives are set to benefit from the plan in 2017, from heritage sites like Dublin Tenement Museum, Henrietta Street and the medieval Abbey of St Thomas the Martyr in The Liberties, to Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, home of the Francis Bacon Studio and Harry Clarke stained glass.

The Early Years Arts Partnership will contribute to the creative potential of children in the North Central Area of the city, while the commissioning of a Dublin City Writer-in-Residence will aim to nurture emerging writers and provide access to their own work for the citizens of Dublin too.

This is a first edition of the Local Authority Culture and Creativity Plan and is subject to change.
