{2jtab: Show Information}COMMUNITY DAY

We’re throwing open our doors for two days of free events and performances to give you a chance to test drive your arts centre.

If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes or fancied trying something new now’s your chance. Come along try new things, meet new artists and ideas, and discover that contemporary art isn’t as scary as you might think.

Join us for coffee, cakes, performances, talks, workshops, readings, face painting, backstage tours and much more. 

Friday 10 May

Join us on Friday, 10 May for a very special live broadcast from our Space Upstairs! RTÉ Radio 1's arts and culture show, Arena, will be live from Project for one night only!

Featuring music from The New Triangle (who play a full set at Project later that night!) and Crash Ensemble, interviews with New Triangle's Roger Doyle, artistic director of Project Arts Centre Cian O'Brien, writer and director Peter Sheridan and writer (and THISISPOPBABY co-founder) Philip McMahon.

Saturday 11 May

On Saturday, we throw the doors wide open to give a taste of what makes Project YOUR arts centre!

All Day:

  • Priscilla Robinson, PROJECT CATALYST artist, presents the delicious Robinson's Roadshow Café, a recreation of those lazy, family afternoons we all remember - with her father's sermons, her mother's stories and both parents love for games, music and conversations (or should that be argument?), and don't forget the baking! Join Priscilla in the Project upper foyer from 11am for tea, cakes and a slice of family-time...

  • Get a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes life at Project Arts Centre by joining one of our venue tours, led by Project's Artistic Director, Cian O'Brien! (11am, 1pm & 4.30pm)

  • Want to know more about our gallery and it's current exhibition, GARDEN? Join a gallery walk'n'talk, where all your questions will be answered! (12pm & 2pm)

  • Curious about Commedia dell'Arte? Annie Ryan, founder of The Corn Exchange, will guide Community Day visitors, both young and not-so-young, in the use of mask make-up and "type", seen in their hit productions such as Man of Valour and Lolita. (12pm - 3pm)

Dance Workshop with Muirne Bloomer (11.30am - 1.30pm):

Spend a dance-filled morning with dancer and choreographer Muirne Bloomer, for a fun introduction to contemporary dance and performance for young families! No experience necessary - Mums and Dads can watch from the side if the young (and young at heart!) want to take to the stage! (Suitable ages 6+)

Theatre & Performance Workshop with THEATREclub (2.00pm - 4.00pm):


Curious about the stage? Join THEATREclub for an afternoon, exploring theatre and performance, whether you're a seasoned professional or a complete rookie! Known for their work with and about communities, THEATREclub will bring their usual energy and ambition to this introduction to the world of theatre and performance. 

Both workshops are free but places are limited - contact our box office on (01) 881 9613 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to book your place now!
