Culture Date with Dublin 8
Culture Date with Dublin 8 is a neighbourhood initiative which took place for the first time in May 2017. The weekend saw a series of special events and activities take place in the historical and cultural landmarks in the Dublin 8 area, including specially curated events, tours, exhibitions and family friendly-activities centred around Kilmainham and Inchicore. The participating institutions were Richmond Barracks, Goldenbridge Cemetery, Kilmainham Gaol, the Irish National War Memorial Gardens, The Magazine Fort in the Phoenix Park and IMMA – The Irish Museum of Modern Art.
The festival was organised by Dublin City Council, Fáilte Ireland, Richmond Barracks, the OPW, Glasnevin Trust and IMMA.
Alice PR & Events provided PR support for the launch of Culture Date with Dublin 8 and advised Culture Date, developing a photo call concept which resulted in high levels of media coverage – including a front page on the Irish Times, the back page of the Irish Examiner, and a picture in the Irish Independent also, as well as online and broadcast coverage.
We provided PR support in the lead up to, and during the events, and developed an online calendar of content for ‘Culture Date with Dublin 8’s’ social media platforms and its website.
