News & Events

Details of our public engagement programme will be published here soon. Sculpture Dublin aims to platform a broad public discussion of sculpture today – looking at the history and legacy of sculpture in the city and creating an exciting new context for the creation of public art. We want to see sculpture become part of everyday conversation, contributing to overall public confidence, self-awareness and pride of place.

We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Hugh Lane Gallery on a VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) Sculpture Club and with Visual Artists Ireland to facilitate a number of Artists Cafés. Paula Murphy will deliver a series of lectures on historic public sculpture in Dublin, and we look forward to working with the Dublin City Council Culture Company on a range of creative engagement activities.

We are developing a local engagement programme in each of the neighbourhoods where a new commission is happening. We are connecting with schools, libraries, local history societies, community organisations and DCC Local Area Offices to raise awareness of the new commissions and the sculpture commissioning process; to involve people in shared experiences of learning and making, and to provoke conversations about how public art enhances our surroundings and enriches our lives.
