Strand 1. Every Individual is Part of Our Story
South Dublin County Councils Public Art programme 2023 – 25
under the Percent for Art Scheme
South Dublin County Council would like to invite proposals from Artists, in any discipline, for six new Public Art commissions which will focus on the artist working with early years, children and young people (and their wider families and communities) to create new artworks.

Imagined as a series of dynamic and ambitious public art commissions, IN CONTEXT 5 aims to gather temporary communities around inspirational ideas. Collaboration between artists and local, national or international partners will help to extend the depth of public engagement. Artists proposals are invited for temporary public art projects and no permanent works of art are envisaged.

Artists should take into account that South Dublin County Council administrative area is formed by multiple cultural backgrounds and stories of its people. It is a place for experimentation and new forward thinking that respects the foundations upon which it has been built. Its future is made up of the individual and community life stories of the people who have chosen to live there. Its outward face is made up of the pride that people find in the local communities that they have built. Every INDIVIDUAL is part of OUR story.
