Looking forward to seeing RED

‘Tis the season for new capital constructions, apparently: South Dublin County Council is set to open its own spanking new cultural facility, RED. I’m hoping to pop down soon and snap a few photos, but in the meantime, a few details from their press announcement:

South Dublin County Council’s latest venture the new County Arts Centre, RED in Tallaght is the most recent addition to Tallaght’s emerging cultural quarter. The centre which represents an investment of almost €10 million in arts and cultural facilities by South Dublin County Council is nearing completion and is due to open soon.

The remit of the centre is to develop the arts in South Dublin County through supporting and providing spaces for productions, exhibitions and process-based activities and by providing workspace for arts organisations and artists.

RED is now looking for individuals and arts organisations who are interested in participating or working within the centre to request an Expression of Interest form.

The facility consists of two gallery spaces, a studio performance space, an art workshop room, five music tuition rooms, a dance and rehearsal studio, two multi media rooms, three incubation units, six artist studio spaces and several meeting rooms.

To receive a Expression of Interest form please contact kphillips@sdublincoco.ie
