WHERE WE LIVE arts festival returns to Dublin as part of St. Patrick’s Festival

The “festival within a festival” explores what it means to be part of lreland today.

‘WHERE WE LIVE’ arts festival takes over the Project Arts Centre in Dublin city from 11-21 March this year. It intends to explore and “celebrate what it means, and how it feels to live in Dublin and Ireland today”.

It sits within St. Patrick’s Festival and consists of theatre, musical collaborations, art installations and much more. This year features work from THISISPOPBABY, MALAPROP, Wayne Jordan with Alma Kelliher, Thommas Kane Byrne, Veronica Dyas & Complex Roots, Peter Maybury and many more.

Where we live

Other special events include Crash Ensemble and Mango x MathMan hot off the back of their collaboration on their debut album ‘Casual Work‘. DJ Tonie Walsh sells all his records in a once in a lifetime pop-up art market and the Club Chroma installation is plucked from IMMA and Popbabied-Up for the closing night party.

The festival shares stories from some of the country’s foremost artistic voices and it examines all the changes taking place, the good and the bad.

This year’s festival explores ideas around occupation, assimilation and community-making, with stories inspired by the evolving city, homelessness, gender, migration, connection, inclusivity, the climate crisis, nightlife culture and the power of active citizenship.

The co-directors of THISISPOPBABY Jenny Jennings and Phillip McMahon said, “This year we bring together over 80 incredible artists in an even deeper investigation of the world around us today.”

“The festival is passionate about fairness, about inclusivity and about the power of stories to provoke conversation, to foster connection, to make us pause, rethink, reframe…. and have a great night out in the process. It’s exciting to be able to bring these conversations to a national and international stage as part of the St. Patrick’s Festival programme, where we collectively imagine and re-imagine what our city and country could be.”

Tickets for all WHERE WE LIVE events will go on sale on Friday 24 January at 11.00am on thisispopbaby.com
