Dublin City Council Culture Company
The National Archives is delighted to be a partner with the Dublin City Council Culture Company, a Dublin City Council initiative established in 2018 to engage local communities with cultural institutions and activities in their area and to promote culture across the city.
We began our engagement by participating in the Out of the Box project which helped individuals to research their family history and local area. This collaboration has continued with the National Neighbourhood project and Culture Club.
The National Neighbourhood builds cultural projects in community settings by connecting artists, groups and villages with libraries, museums and creative places, to deepen their understanding of their local culture. Through its participation with the National Neighbourhood, the National Archives has engaged in mural projects with the Kilmore West Youth Group and the Kilbarrack Coast Community Programme.
Culture Club generally consists of an exhibition or building tour with an informed guide in the company of a group of city residents. Through its participation with Culture Club, we welcome a group of visitors every month, providing talks on our rich holdings and promoting the wide range of services which we offer to the public.
