Dublin’s architecture gallery, darc space, has launched a programme of lunchtime talks to mark its new exhibition Sacred Space. The exhibition celebrates the ‘making’ and ‘unmaking’ of sacred space in Dublin, including never-seen-before photographs of Dublin’s intercultural communities in their adapted spaces.
The talk series – Thursdays @ darc space – offers a rich portrait of Dublin’s changing landscape of faith and the adaptation of existing sacred and non-sacred space for these communities.
Speaking in the talk series on Thursday 16 April at 1pm is architect Sheila O’Donnell of O’Donnell + Tuomey Architects on the conversion of the Quaker Meeting House in Temple Bar into the IFI.
Photographer Eugene Langan and Dublin City Architect Ali Grehan will discuss Dublin’s intercultural city on 30 April.
Previous speakers in the series were social geographer Dr Eoin O’Mahoney on religious change; Dr Melanie Browne on Dublin’s lost synagogues; Niall McCullough architect of the adapted Rush Parish Church and Carmelite Friar Father Nicholas on the tradition of the ‘hidden church’.
All talks start at 1pm, last approximately 1 hour and are free, but booking is essential by contacting Maggie Moran on email firstname.lastname@example.org or T 01 878 8535.
