MART is an artist initiative set up in 2006 by Matthew Nevin and Ciara Scanlan. MART’s primary aim is to create a platform for new media, installation, sculpture, experimental film and performance artists. MART was founded on an inclusive ethos, which aims to break down boundaries in the visual arts through its ability to inspire a curiosity for knowledge and education through art. MART aims to bring contemporary art to the forefront of culture by actively engaging people from all sectors of society in both its viewing and production.
MART’s website has grown into Ireland’s largest video art library and collection of active Irish visual artists showcasing contemporary art. The online interactive gallery hosts visual art on display and informative educational text, as a way of enriching an understanding of experimental and challenging artwork. This growing site showcases over 150 of the finest emerging and established artists, making their artwork publicly accessible. MART aims to provide an art resource that is accessible, interesting and enjoyable to the public.
MART holds no exclusivity in targeting its audience, as it aims to showcase to local and international audiences, artists, curators, art collectors, art organisations, not for profit organisations, voluntary art groups and art enthusiasts. To accomplish this, MART actively encourages public participation through workshops, talks and discussions around exhibitions and artist led events held in both contemporary galleries and within accessible temporary locations.
MART also acts as a platform and support group for individual artists and curators seeking advice and assistance on hosting their own exhibition in relation to promotion, location etc. MART specialises in international exhibitions of Irish artists and has supported the work of over 300 artists through its previous exhibitions and events. MART has reached an audience of over 30,000 in exhibitions across Ireland, the U.K, Central Eastern Europe and North America. Through an extensive international press portfolio MART has reached over 1 million people.
During 2012 MART has launched its first permanent gallery and studios ‘THE MART’, in an old fire station in Dublin serving local, national and international art endeavours. THE MART is home to artist studios, two galleries, a workshop space and ‘MIAEN’ (MART’S International Arts Exchange Network), a programme that offers an opportunity for international artists/curators to exhibit and curate in Dublin.

The Dublin branch of the Alliance Française is the third biggest in Europe and the first established in a non-French speaking country.
The aim of the Alliance Française in Dublin is to promote French culture, as well as to provide a space for intercultural exchanges between Ireland and the cultures of the French-speaking world. The branch has more than a century of history, but has existed in its current form for fifty years.
The Alliance Française Dublin is a French Language and Cultural Centre which also hosts a French Multimedia Library.
Ideally located at the corner of Nassau and Kildare Street in a listed Irish Heritage site, the Alliance Française Dublin is less than five minutes’ walk from a range of Dublin Bike ranks, bus stops, taxi ranks, Luas and Dart stations. The Alliance Française even has its own café on the premises, which is open to the public: bright and spacious, La Cocotte Café doubles as an exhibition space for an ever-changing array of interesting contemporary artworks, and is the perfect place to stop off while exploring the nearby museums.
The Alliance Française in Dublin is also home to the Délégation Générale de l’Alliance française en Irlande (Alliance Française Irish Network). The organisation is particularly active in Ireland, supported as it is by a network of committees based in Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick, Waterford and Wexford.
The Alliance Française is a non-profit organisation and a Registered Irish Charity. You can support our action and become a member!

From Dublin with Love - THE HUB x
I am a Dublin based artist, graduating from Fine Art in 2010. This is my latest venture into illustration born from a love of all pawed and non-pawed creatures.
Pawpawpawpawprints.com came about with thanks to my loyal companion Milo. Milo was my 14 year old family shih tzu and he died in 2014. I was heartbroken. It took about a year to bring myself around to it, but I decided that I wanted a portrait of him for myself and anyone in my family who would like it. Having recently completed a course in Adobe Illustrator I tried my hand at drawing Milo using my new found skills. My family were delighted with the drawing and it was special for me to remember my little pal. Then one or two other family members requested some drawings and suggested that there may be a place on the market for an idea like this. So I set up an etsy page, got going on social media and have been expanding on my business knowledge since August 2015. My background is in Fine Art and I make abstract paintings and sculptures, so this business is a great way for me to marry my love of being creative and my sincere love for animals. It is hugely rewarding when I give a pet owner a portrait of their animal, it means a lot to them and that happiness in turn means a lot to me. I have drawn a few portraits of pets who have died and I understand how important it is to have a way to remember our pet family members, I'm delighted that I can do that for people.
I recently left my job to pursue pawpawpawpawprints and my own artistic work on a full time basis so I am looking forward to the adventure ahead.
If you like what you see please spread the word on social media, it's hugely appreciated.
Open 7 days a week.

Events-wise, on any given day you could walk into a back yard market, an exhibition launch, a marathon 10hr set from a Detroit DJ legend, a hot-tub party, fresh pizza on a double decker bus, an Italian breakfast, a live show from emerging Dublin bands, graffiti battles, sunshine sangrias in the yard, or even just a simple pint of plain and a chat.
We are an intimate venue catering to Harcourt Street's more discerning, mature customer.

Every piece has a story...
OZRA Living specialises in handcrafted, designer ceramic homeware and jewellery made in Dublin, Ireland. Our ranges are inspired by the landscapes, nature and culture of Ireland and beyond - the mystical Irish coastline, a fallen coconut found on an exotic island, antique Rajasthani textile stamps, tropical fungi, mythical creatures and Pre-Columbian art.
Our designs combine rustic, earthy yet sleek and contemporary aesthetics. Every piece is timeless. We believe that objects alchemised from clay using such ancient methods should retain a natural quality - which is why we have chosen the medieval alchemy symbol for earth as our logo.
We wish to add an alternative selection to the mass produced homeware that surrounds us. In a world where globalisation has rendered everything homogeneous, the prospect of an affordable object with provenance and heritage, created by an actual person, using unique skills, is becoming increasingly desirable. Each piece is one of a kind, created by a multi award winning Irish artist and designer.
As seen on RTE, The Irish Times, the Irish Sun and Ceramics Now Magazine.

There is no contact number, you need to pop into the venue between 9.30-10.30pm any night of the week
