Established in 2010 by Tallaght Community Arts, DoubleTAKE is an arts initiative that seeks to develop and support people with disabilities to develop their creativity through and in the arts.
DoubleTAKE Supported Art Studio is a professional artist’s studio, dedicated to enabling people with disabilities meet and integrate with other artists. It is a space where creative people can meet, think, discuss and make arts work in their own time. Each session is supported and guided by an artist mentor who is there to provide artistic and creative support and mentoring. Personal assistants are welcome and they are happy to work with members to support them as best as possible.
In 2017 DoubleTAKE Artist Studio held its first major public exhibition ‘Independence’ in Rua Red Gallery 2. The group exhibition celebrated the creativity of 70 artists with disabilities who took as their inspiration the idea of independence arising from the 2016 centenary events. The exhibition saw the launch of a book ‘Journey’s to Independence’ profiling the work of the individual artists and demonstrating the continuing need to integrate people with disabilities in our wider artistic culture.
