Parnell Square Cultural Quarter will be a landmark destination which will complete Dublin City’s Civic Spine at its northern end.
The Parnell Square Cultural Quarter Project structure is built on collaborative teams.
Parnell Square Cultural Quarter Culture Group was established as the Parnell Square project working group. Its aim is to explore the totality of creative possibilities of the quarter. It is chaired by the City Librarian. Its members are drawn from Dublin City Council departments including Libraries, The Arts Office, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, City Architect’s Department and the Culture, Recreation, Amenity and Community Department.
Parnell Square Steering Group is the project board for the Parnell Square Cultural Quarter Project. It is chaired by the Project Sponsor, the Assistant City Manager of the Culture, Recreation, Amenity and Community Department. It provides oversight to the project and receives reports from the Project Working group.
Work has commenced surveying the properties to house the new City Library and other cultural facilities at Parnell Square North. It is intended that Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane will form part of the overall Parnell Square Cultural Quarter offering and its role and impact will be expanded by the development of the new facilities.
The Parnell Square Cultural Quarter is an ambitious project encompassing places for learning, literature, music, innovation and enterprise, inter-culturalism and design.
