Dublin’s art scene has stagnated since the economic downturn in 2008. Funding that used to go to arts and culture programmes has been severely cut, and despite being nearly ten years on, still hasn’t recovered.
This is where The Tara Building comes in. We chatted to Nichol Gray, the building’s manager. Located next to Apollo House, it’s Dublin’s latest studio and collaborative creative space, set to launch this March.
Nichol chatted with Adam from District, and discusses plans for the Tara Building, the state of Dublin’s creative scene, and why the Poolbeg chimneys have become so iconic in Dublin’s design scene.
