Almost every country has been hit with hard financial times, and Ireland, with its capital Dublin, has not been immune to this. Nevertheless, those who have visited Dublin in the past few years will barely have noticed it: the city has maintained its vibrant atmosphere, and whoever thinks they have seen all that the city has to offer in the arts they will be pleasantly surprised upon a return visit. For instance, lot of empty lots have become available and artists are now using them as pop-up spaces where they can exhibit and perform.
Anyone who likes to just mull around and take in the variety of different visual arts there are many collections that have been put on it exhibition in small galleries. Aside from the many theatre productions that are put on in the age-old theatre facilities, warehouses are now being used for upcoming artists to display their talents through plays, installations and gigs.
This is in itself a testament as to how important the arts are to those who live in Dublin. No matter what the economics may be or the financial situation of the city, these intellectuals will always have a safe harbour here, it seems.
This in itself creates a wonderful reason and opportunity for vacationers to plan on spending some time in Dublin, as it gives them the chance to be exposed to different types of art that they may not have been privy to in the past or may not have even considered.
Art is important in any culture and it allows for a form of expression no matter what category of the arts is being presented. While many young artists may use this as their foundation for starting out in the art world there is no way of telling what new doors of opportunity may await them.
