Since its inception in 2009 RUA RED is fast becoming a cultural landmark in South Dublin. With almost 2000 people coming through our doors every week to share, create and enjoy the arts and social aspect of the centre.
We engage more than 3,000 people every year in our education programs through hands-on workshops, film screenings and artist talks. These programs help children and adults, young and old, to discover and explore exhibitions. Whether it’s rolling up your sleeves in an artist led workshop or listening to an artist talk about their work, we’re here to introduce audiences to new ideas.
RUA RED’s policy of offering subsidized space for the creation and enjoyment of arts has seen some of the most vulnerable in our community find a space to explore and build their confidence and skills in a safe, encouraging environment. Your support is what we need to ensure this happens. Please help us to reach our goal by donating €10, or whatever you can afford.
