We know that great cultural experiences require a lot of work by great people behind the scenes. To help us develop and deliver some great cultural experiences in the coming year, we at Dublin City Council Culture Company are looking to generate a panel of experienced Cultural Producers and Cultural Project Managers.
The ideal candidates will have a strong background in developing and managing cultural projects, with a track record in working with artists and a wider partner network, and will be committed to making projects open and welcoming to a very broad range of participants and audiences.
Our Cultural Producers/Project Managers follow a process of engagement and development within local neighbourhoods, stakeholders, and artists to develop and deliver a range of collaborative projects. As Cultural Producer/ Project Manager, you would be responsible for guiding these projects from conception through to delivery and evaluation.
If this sounds like you and you’re available to work on projects in 2018-2019, we want you!
We wish to pre-select suitably experienced and motivated persons in order to establish a panel of candidates who can be offered these projects for development as they arise. All projects will have the values of Dublin City Council Culture Company at their core. Projects will be made available to the panel for consideration at different times between September and December 2018 and are for development and completion within 2019.
Dublin City Council Culture Company is a new company established to create and deliver cultural initiatives in Dublin City, and to initiate, implement and manage cultural programmes and buildings for the benefit of the citizens of Dublin, locally and citywide. Collaborating with citizens, communities, cultural organisations, businesses, and Dublin City Council itself, the company’s work is focused on embedding cultural experiences and increasing cultural participation throughout Dublin’s neighbourhoods. The Company is governed by a Board, comprising members of the Dublin City Council and Executive, and independent members from the cultural and heritage sector. Please note that Dublin City Council Culture Company offices are in a heritage property with limited accessibility in certain areas.

Dublin City Council Culture Company runs a series of varied and multi-faceted projects and programmes, which already have a significant track record of impact in communities across the city. The cultural engagement and capacity building projects are delivered by a team of Cultural Producers, Cultural Project Managers, and Engagement Officers whose work informs the content of all communications.
One of our key engagement programmes, within the Dublin’s Culture Connects initiative, is The National Neighbourhood, which connects Dubliners, community groups and artists with the National Cultural Institutions (Abbey Theatre, National Concert Hall, IMMA, Chester Beatty, National Archives of Ireland, National Gallery of Ireland, National Museum of Ireland, the National Library) and the Culture Department of Dublin City Council (Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane Dublin, Dublin City Public Libraries & Archive, Dublin City Arts Office and Community Development).
Through The National Neighbourhood, we want Dubliners to know and “own” their city’s cultural resources so we build cultural projects in community settings, connecting artists, groups, and villages with libraries, museums, and creative places to deepen their understanding of each other and themselves.
Other programmes (in development) include artist-led programmes such as Local Heroes and Engage the City and other cultural engagement programmes in the city.
The raw material for all programmes and their development comes from ongoing engagement with Dublin citizens, connecting people through culture and conversation.
