Living Canvas Dublin

Beidh dhá phíosa filíochta liom le feiceáil ar an scáileán mór i gcroílár Bhaile Átha Cliath.

Living Canvas is a large-scale outdoor digital screen on the banks of Dublin’s Grand Canal. Solely dedicated to cultural use, it is the largest in Europe, and the second of its kind in the world. Offering artists a unique and spectacular platform to introduce their work to a wider public, Living Canvas knits art as a way of life into the heart of Dublin City. It has been created, and is fully supported by IPUT, one of Ireland’s oldest Property Investment companies, as part of their ongoing commitment to placemaking, and their belief that arts and culture need to find space in cities, alongside places to live and to work. Living Canvas is programmed by a curatorial committee including representatives from the Royal Hibernian Academy, the Museum of Literature Ireland, the Arts Office of Dublin City Council, and Algorithm. 

Words at Wilton Park is a six week long programme, timed to coincide with Dublin’s International Literary Festival in May, and celebrating Dublin’s role as an UNESCO city of literature, and the rich literary legacy of Wilton Park, where a new square being developed by IPUT is being named in honour of Mary Lavin, the first Irish female writer to have a public space named for her.
