Dublin City Council are building a campus for artists in the Liberties

Words: Katie Gartland

The ‘Liberties Creative Campus’ will give artists and local residents a place to work in the city centre.

Dublin City Council are planning to develop a campus for artists and residents of the Liberties. It is set to be developed on Bridge Street and Merchants Quay.

The proposal to create the campus was under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund, €19 million will be invested into the sites.

The Council plans to link up with colleges in the area, including NCAD, to create a campus for art and culture.

In a study done by Dublin City Council’s art Office, they found that 41% of artists surveyed were currently looking for workspace accommodation and 85% of artists thought Dublin’s current workspaces were unaffordable.
