Culture Night Dublin is inviting proposals from professional artists, born in or currently living in Dublin, for Awaken The Metropolis, an artistic response to public spaces in our capital city and the communities therein. Three artist commissions, to the value of €2,000 each, are being supported by Dublin City Council.

The commissions invite professional artists operating in any discipline to propose works that make connections between public spaces and communities in the city. The understanding of the word community is up to the artists’ individual interpretation. 100 years since the publication of Ulysses, the microscopically detailed day-in-the-life of Leopold Bloom, we are reminded of a quote from Joyce:

“I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world. In the particular is contained the universal”.

In the centenary of Joyce’s intricate exploration of the metropolis, urban landscapes and communities around the world awaken from the forced dormancy of the global pandemic. Artists are invited to awaken the previously dormant spaces of Dublin City, exploring the particularities of being both urban and human.

Each work will be presented as part of Culture Night Dublin 2022 on Friday, 23 September. For more information on how to apply, please click here.

Culture Night Dublin 2022 will take place on Friday, 23 September. As a night of entertainment, cultural discovery and adventure across the city, arts organisations, and cultural and historic houses open their doors until late, with hundreds of free events for all to enjoy.

Culture Night Dublin’s success hinges on the work of our amazing volunteers, who help stage events across the city. Our volunteers are assigned to a variety events on the night – from assisting at one of our many outdoor events, supervising our specially curated walking tour programme or accompanying the artists performing across the city on Dublin Bus. With a variety of flagship events planned for this year’s programme on Friday, 23 September, we are seeking a range of diverse individuals to fill two different volunteer roles:

– Event Ambassador

– Social Media Volunteer

Volunteering with Culture Night Dublin allows people to contribute to their local cultural scene, and give back after what has been a challenging period. It is also a great way to meet new people, form friendships, make contacts in your field of interest and a chance to do something different!
