Friday 10th May 2019: Over 30 volunteers from Grand Canal Quay - residents, employees, school students, volunteers from the Docklands Business Forum and Trinity College Dublin students and personnel transformed a disused wall along the quay into a piece of art. The artwork is partly designed to point to what is to come for the area – the Grand Canal Innovation District.
Trinity, in partnership with Docklands Business Forum and with the support of Dublin City Council have taken on the task of re-painting one of the external walls of the Trinity Technology and Enterprise Centre on Grand Canal Quay as part of the annual Docklands Volunteer Day. The artwork alludes to an “Innovation District” which refers to Trinity’s proposed plan to develop a new campus at the site which will act as a catalyst to develop a globally competitive innovation district for Dublin in the heart of the Docklands. Such a district has the potential to increase our international competitiveness, drive further investment to the city and regions, provide support for local entrepreneurs, connections between researchers and businesses and critically provide an asset for local residents.
Artists Wanted for Dún Laoghaire Street Art Project General News Wednesday, January 6, 2021 DLR COUNTY We’re looking for artists to get involved in the Dún Laoghaire Street Art Project. The first project of its kind in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, it aims to create an open-air art gallery in Dún Laoghaire town, using its walls and doorways as a canvas to showcase the best of urban street art. Initially conceived of as a way to brighten up urban areas and encourage footfall, the Project can perhaps take on a new life in the context of COVID-19. When it comes to fruition in summer 2021, we hope that it might reflect a move towards brighter days, and with it bring an optimism that has been difficult for many to maintain over the last year. We are now inviting interested artists to submit their proposals for consideration. All the details are here – please note that the closing date for receipt of proposals is 5pm on Wednesday, February 24th, 2021. Expressions of interest are also sought from parties interested in managing the Dún Laoghaire Street Art Project. Further information is available from the Economic Development Unit at [email protected].
