Located in Dublin’s North East Inner City, the Fire Station Artists’ Studios was established in 1993 to address the needs of professional visual artists.
It primarily provides subsidised combined live/work studios for Irish and international artists, sculpture workshop facilities and training opportunities for artists. The Fire Station training program has expanded to include digital and film training and we continue to host master classes and technical training.
A key policy of the Fire Station is to contribute to the debate on collaborative arts practice through commissioning and developing innovative collaborative arts projects. We aim to disseminate our distinct model of collaborative arts practice with a view to impacting on models of engagement. We believe to effectively carry out this aim all projects that we commission, partner or project manage must have a publication of artistic and critical merit produced.
