The Press Up Entertainment Group is funding a new Arts Centre in a premises adjacent to its Dean Hotel in Dublin.
The Dean Arts Studio is a new, multi-disciplinary hub located on Harcourt Street in the heart of Dublin city centre. It is a practical response to the contraction of accessible, affordable city workspaces for artists of all disciplines, due in part to the loss of cultural spaces through development.
Both established and emerging practitioners across visual arts, literature, photography, sound, music and more will begin to take up residency this year. The Studio will be fully funded by The Dean Dublin and Press Up Hospitality Group, and the fourteen studios and office spaces will be gifted to artists, cultural institutions and arts organisations.
IMMA and The Dean Dublin are partnering through IMMA’s Artists’ Residency Programme by programming four artistic practices through the provision of studio spaces at the Dean Arts Studio.
Artists will not access the Dean Arts Studio until deemed safe by the HSE and in accordance with all government Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines.
Both established and emerging practitioners across visual arts, literature, photography, sound, music, art curation and more, will take up residency in the refurbished Georgian building in late 2020. It is envisaged that more than 40 artists, cultural institutions and arts organisations will benefit from the Studio.
