Who we are

We are an artist-led organisation initiated by a desire to respond to what seemed like an endless flow of creative people who wanted to produce work, have exhibitions and make things happen. In the four years since our inception we have developed from a group of artists with tonnes of energy and a derelict building, to an award-winning, artist-led organisation with two venues consisting of renovated studios and a high-quality gallery space - both in the heart of Dublin city centre. Through all of this change and growth our original mission, values and passion remains the same. We continue to work with a diverse range of early career and established artists through subsidised studio spaces, a high-profile gallery space, and artistic and professional supports.

Why we need your help

We really want to purchase a high specification projector and back projection screen to facilitate projections onto the large, street level window of our Temple Bar gallery. This will have two benefits. Firstly, it will be an amazing facility for our exhibiting artists both during and after our opening hours. Lots of artists have had exciting ideas for our windows in the past, but to date the associated costs have been prohibitive. Secondly, we see this equipment as providing us with a new opportunity to generate independent sources of revenue by using it as a space to promote other cultural activities and organisations - we already have groups interested in working with us on this!

Who it will benefit

As well as benefiting artists by being able to offer them the use of fantastic new equipment, the public will get to view the resulting work in a very accessible way and Temple Bar will be more artistically animated at night. The income we can generate from the projector will help build sustainability for Monster Truck. The money you pledge to us for this project will help us to purchase equipment which can generate income on an ongoing basis and continue to help support early career and established artists directly.

We'd like to thank all of our supporters in advance for backing this project.
