TALLAGHT COMMUNITY ARTS 

Tallaght Community Arts is an arts development company that fosters and supports participation in the arts for the well-being and enjoyment of all.  We create opportunities for artists and the people of South Dublin County to explore together the transformative and celebratory power of the arts.

We believe that by putting each individual at the centre of the creative process we can challenge, inform and transform.  We often work with people not well represented in our society   

As an arts development organization we create work in the heart of communities; in schools, community gardens, football stadiums and individual people’s homes – as well as in designated arts spaces.  Our work focuses on participatory arts, encouraging and supporting people of all ages to be involved in the making of art. 

We commission new works and seed projects across South Dublin County opening up the transforming power of the arts to a diverse group of participants  and audiences.

As an organisation we have established a number of long term initiatives in the areas of cultural diversity, youth at risk, older citizens, people with disabilities as well as young emerging artists.

We work in partnership with local and national agencies to foster sustainable community development with the arts playing a dynamic role in addressing the needs of Tallaght and the wider South Dublin County communities: geographically, culturally and socially.

Our work nearly always invites the public to join us in sharing and celebrating and the work that participants have achieved working alongside artists.

Participants have found that working with leading national and international artists has given them new skills and expanded horizons.  Artists have in turn enhanced their own work.

Tallaght Community Arts is a registered charity: Registered Charity Number: CHY 11678
