Four people having a conversation in a Georgian style room. A person with short red hair in a denim jacket stands next to a person with long brown hair in a yellow dress. They are both speaking to a person with long brown hair in a blue dress, and person with hair in a bun wearing shorts and a tshirt. They are all smiling and laughing, while a smaller group of people chat behind them in the background. The room is bright blue, and we see some glimpses of artwork on the walls in gilded frames.

Open Call: Dublin City Council Culture Company Open Advisory Group

Posted: 3 May, 2024

Dublin City Council Culture Company wishes to create an advisory group to support the development of their work.

The group will be asked to provide input into their work in ongoing engagement programmes and operation of cultural buildings and to work with their team to strengthen ideas, make connections and help Dublin City Council Culture Company to create meaningful cultural experiences for the people of Dublin.

The people of Dublin remain at the centre of their work and to ensure that everyone is represented, they wish to hear from a wide range of people with a variety of backgrounds, interests, perspectives and experiences to join the advisory group.

Dublin City Council Culture Company encourage expressions of interest from people that represent the variety of communities and cultural interests of the city, so if you are involved in community, sport, recreation, the Irish language, the environment, science, heritage, arts or are interested in the work that we do, they would like to hear from you.

What does being part of the advisory group involve?

The advisory group role is:

  • To attend and engage in workshops with the team (a maximum of four meetings per year).
  • To act as a sounding board, providing ideas and reactions to the current programme or projects in development.
  • To contribute their experience and expertise, to strengthen the impact and programmes of the Culture Company.
  • To provide guidance and ensure that the development and delivery of programmes and public engagement reflects the needs and expectations of the people of Dublin.
  • To identify opportunities within their own communities and networks which could be relevant to the Culture Company and its activities.
  • To act as an ambassador for the work of the Culture Company and to make new connections for the Culture Company where appropriate.
