Creative Places Darndale
Creative Places Darndale is a three-year project supported by the Arts Council. Awarded to Sphere 17 for the area of Darndale in June 2021, the Arts Council’s Creative Places programme invests in places such as towns, villages, suburbs, and island communities that have had fewer opportunities to take part in the arts. The arts in Ireland can be defined by its various art forms – i.e. Visual Art, Music, Dance, Literature, Film, Theatre, Opera, Traditional Arts, Architecture, Circus and Street Arts and Spectacle.
The purpose of Creative Places Darndale is to weave the arts into everyday life in Darndale. Over the course of three years, this will be achieved by:
Building on the variety of art forms that are already present in Darndale
Introducing the arts or different art forms where they are not present
Increasing participation in the arts by the people who live in Darndale
Leaving a legacy of participation in the arts in Darndale
