District Conversations Podcast [Nichol Gray – The Tara Building]

“We’re offering a scholarship and incubation scheme on a rolling basis, so if somebody has a project or practice that would benefit from the space they can apply through our website… I’d like to see more applications coming in for it… The more I speak about it, the more people will become aware of it.”

 

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.
