Be there for the Square. Parnell Square Survey

Dublin City Council have intention to create a cultural Quarter at Parnell Square.  Don’t be a bystander be a participant.  Be there for the Square.


Dear Councillor

The recently announced vision of a new cultural quarter for Dublin City in Parnell Square highlights the new City Library to be built beside the existing world-class Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane which will offer a range of creative, participative and educational experiences. A civic plaza will connect the new library and Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane, creating a new public space that those who live, work and visit Dublin can use, engage with and enjoy in the heart of the City.

Dublin City Council has engaged Green Hat to carry out an initial public consultation to ensure that the vision of a Cultural Quarter as a cultural space for all is realised.Focusing on the responses to the vision and the desired physical spaces for the area, the consultation has sought input and ideas on the provision of opportunities to learn, create and participate. A series of workshops and Café Consultations have taken place in June 2013 to engage with and collate the thoughts and ideas of local businesses, residents, arts and cultural organisations and other interested parties.

We are keen to gather as wide a range of views as possible and would encourage you to complete a short online survey which should take no longer than 10 minutes. We would appreciate if you could circulate this email to your constituents and anyone with an interest in the future of the Parnell Square area. The online survey will remain open until Friday 28th June 2013.

You can access the survey by clicking this link or typing into your browser.
This dynamic and exciting project will inspire cultural, physical and economic regeneration and will fulfil Dublin’s ambitions for a ‘Civic Spine’,a route connecting the capital’s key cultural & historic sites with retail areas, from Parnell Square down O’Connell Street through College Green to Christchurch, extending south to Kilmainham and eventually north to Grangegorman.
