Arts & Culture at The Digital Hub

Since its foundation in 2003 The Digital Hub has provided an intersection between creativity, art, innovation and technology for the benefit of the local community.

Arts & Culture programme highlights include:

The Digital Hub partnering with Dublin Dance Festival
Dublin Dance Festival and The Digital Hub teamed up in 2019, to bring the Missy Elliot Project to The Digital Hub, when a group of young girls were mentored by female artists of colour over the course of a week. This live performance and digital exchange project, saw the young women work with an expert team of choreographers, performance artists, musicians, and designers to make a VR experience which imagines a radical new future.

Artist-in-Residence Programme Launches at The Digital Hub
This programme allows artists to bring their unique perspectives to life at The Digital Hub and contribute to The Digital Hub’s programmes and community initiatives, as well as the artistic and cultural life of the area. The Digital Hub’s Artist-in-Residence Programme, operating since 2018, is a vital element of that intersection. Contemporary artist, Seoidín O’Sullivan became The Digital Hub’s fourth artist in residence in 2021.

The Digital Hub Hosts Culture Night
The Digital Hub was proud to take part in Culture Night for a three year period from 2017 to 2019. Throughout the three years we developed and built exciting collaborations with both Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival and The Dublin Flea Market. This tied in perfectly with our re-engagement with culture and creativity at The Digital Hub.

The Digital Hub Hosts Dublin Flea Market
The Digital Hub was delighted to host the Dublin Flea Market at Digital Depot in the summer of 2019. It was a welcome return to Dublin 8 for the Dublin Flea, which was previously held in nearby Newmarket Square. The Dublin Flea Market first opened its doors in November 2008 and since then it has grown into one of Dublin’s most loved markets with stalls selling everything from vintage clothes to secondhand bikes, retro furniture and more – anything a bargain hunter would expect to find at a flea market.

‘this is not a table’ by Robin Price
In 2018, The Digital Hub invited the public to visit our campus to interact with a digital art installation called ‘this is not a table’. ‘This is not a table’ is a digital art display by British artist Robin Price. The installation is a ping-pong table designed to create a variety of stunning displays with every bounce of the ball.
