Local Heroes

Local Heroes shines a light on Dublin’s many local and community heroes, through art. We commission a range of artists, including dancers, musicians, poets, animators, and photographers to create “portraits” of extraordinary Dubliners who have made a big impact on their local communities.

Local Heroes will return in 2019 and we are looking forward to meeting a new batch of Local Heroes through a live nomination process, and this is where you come in. Is there someone making an impact in your local community? Someone exceptional, inspiring? Someone working tirelessly, in a big or small way, to contribute to the unique character of the city? We want to hear about them.

You can nominate your Local Hero for 2019 here.
