“Art and the Outdoors” to be held in Dublin at the end of July

Art and the Outdoors“, a two-day open air event aimed at families will be held on Parnell Square North on July 31 and August 1, 2021.

It will be inspired with artists who moved outdoors of their studios during Covid pandemic and it will include artist-led outdoor drawing, a street performance by the Dublin Circus Project and live music, ranging from jazz to classical.

Lord Mayor of Dublin Alison Gilliland said: “After so much time spent in lockdown, it’s a great way for people to reconnect with creativity and enjoy a truly inspiring cultural space in the city. I’m really looking forward to popping along for a look.”

Mayor Gilliland will launch the event at 12 noon on Saturday, July 31.

There will also be a programme of readings in conjunction with Poetry Ireland. This initiative is part of a wider programme led by the Office of City Recovery.

The event will run from noon to 4pm each day, with Covid restrictions applied.
