Artscope & Creative Ireland South Dublin

The Dublin Song

In April ‘21 Artscope was awarded funding under the Creative Ireland Programme South Dublin to create The Dublin Song. This project conducted research around peoples own “Dublin Song”, their memories of people and places through song and the importance of song in their lives. From the list of song titles collected 14 songs emerged as The Dublin Song! The four films below follow the songs of Dublin, Places, People and Remembrance with performances by professional singers, a series of short interviews and soundbites from a variety of individuals and groups – all with one thing in common – their place in The Dublin Song.

The Dublin Song is supported by the Creative Ireland South Dublin Programme through Creativity in Older Age
