The programme launch took place at Kilmainham Mills, a former flour and textile mill complex and protected structure that recently underwent a conservation process by Dublin City Council, with a view to it ultimately opening to the public as a community and cultural hub.
It is one of more than 150+ buildings and spaces that will be opened up for everyone to visit and experience free of charge during the Open House Dublin festival, with walking tours, boat tours, exhibitions, films, podcasts, lectures, workshops, innovative new programme events and a dedicated weekend for children and families.
Islander Architects are part of a Reimagining Elderhood exhibition with Self Organised Architecture happening as part of Open House Dublin, while Dr Dervla MacManus of UCD will be giving a talk on gender equity in the Irish architecture profession.
All Open House Dublin events are free, but pre-booking is required for some. Pre-booking for ticketed events opens at 9.00am on the 14th September. Full details of the programme, including which events require pre-booking, can be found on the website OpenHouseDublin.com.
