@TheDrawingRoom is an exciting new project designed to develop the public’s awareness of architecture, culture and heritage through a series of events in some of Dublin’s finest Georgian town houses. It aims to provide an alternative to the concert hall or gallery setting for audiences to enjoy music and art.

The aim of the project is to invite an audience into selected houses and to encourage the audience to interact and engage with the performances as well as with the architecture of each venue. The @TheDrawingRoom series stimulates people’s innate sense of curiosity, giving the audience an opportunity to explore the various homes, their beautiful interiors and interesting histories.

What’s on?
To launch @TheDrawingRoom, we are holding an exhibition in No.12 Henrietta Street this October. For this exhibition we are showcasing contemporary artworks in one of Dublin's finest Georgian houses during the Open House Weekend (4-6 October). This first exhibition will be free to the public and so we need your help.

Amongst the grand rooms of No 12 Henrietta Street we will be presenting a delightful mix of art works from new and established artists:

Multimedia installation by Pierre Jolivet as Pacific 231
Photography by Fiona Hackett
Ceramics by Claudia Stedmond
Painting by Hugh Madden
Architecture by Practice
Furniture design by Alan Meredith
Photography by Aoife O'Sullivan and Janet Williams

Examples of the artwork can be found on our website

Why does @TheDrawingRoom need your help?
We have no doubt that this is going to be a fantastic show. @TheDrawingRoom is intent on invigorating the cultural life of Dublin’s North Georgian Quarter. But we need your help!

This Fund it campaign is for ONE WEEK only.
It is a two-tier Fund it Project. The first €700 we raise will fund our initial exhibition in Henrietta Street and will cover production and equipment costs, as well as the production of a small booklet. Any and all monies above our goal of €700 will be used for further projects, including a November jazz night and a classical music weekend in April.

As we are a tiny organisation, all your money will go to the series. We gratefully acknowledge the support of An Taisce, Cloney Audio and CompuB in our endeavours. But we are completely reliant on YOUR support and goodwill so PLEASE GIVE WHAT YOU CAN so that we can continue to deliver excellent, interesting and innovative art to the North Georgian Quarter.

Thank you very much for your help!
