Making Connections

Create, chat and connect with artists in Temple Bar. For free. For everybody.

Making Connections offers an introduction to contemporary art through artist-led workshops, tours, and events. Designed for all audiences, especially for those who are new to contemporary art. Explore, learn, and create together supported by the artists and team at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios.

Summer School

Enjoy a gallery experience with a difference. Over three days the gallery will be dedicated to artistic activity and conversation. Visitors can drop in, create and add to interactive art projects created by studio artists. This is a family friendly event, no experience necessary. Feel free to drop in for a look, try out some making or book individual workshops online.

Art Walk

Discover vibrant contemporary art in Dublin’s Cultural Quarter. Art Walk is a guided walking tour hosted monthly by TBG+S. The tours begin with an introduction to TBG+S and the gallery exhibition, followed by a short stroll to neighbouring galleries and studios including Black Church Print Studio, Project Arts Centre and Photo Museum Ireland. Art Walk is led by our friendly team and is a unique opportunity to be introduced to the exhibitions and arts organisations in Temple Bar

Drawing Sessions

Experiment and take time to 'to see' through the act of observational drawing. With no intended outcomes, these sessions draw out meaning, connection and expand on ideas from the exhibition. This is an opportunity to engage with mindful drawing practices in an inspiring environment. Beginning with a short introduction to the exhibition, you will then be free to draw, and share if you wish.

Flags Public Art Commission

A temporary public art commission sees the extension of TBG+S into the city landscape. Created for Culture Night 2024 and on view for the week, the commission supports an invited artist, new to our community, to create a series of flags to be flown along Wellington Quay. Drop in to TBG+S for an extended conversation and workshop on Culture Night.
