Who would have thought that in its 99th year after independence Dublin Castle, along with many other museums and historic sites, would go partially digital? We can still walk in it, experience it with most, if not all, of our senses, but this time we can do it from anywhere in the world. Turning a crisis into an opportunity is not just a cliché, it’s a reality. And there is nothing virtual about that. The Digital Castle is a platform that we can travel from.
We continue our collaborative journeys to new ways of engaging with art and architecture, we discuss history, question buildings, address challenges of the present through critical exploration of the past and we keep creating inclusive and diverse communities through diverse practices.
We invite you to enter through a new door: ISL | Dublin Castle.
And if this doesn’t bring you far enough, you can explore more by clicking or tapping on the WHAT’S ON, ABOUT, EDUCATION and Blog tabs and by visiting our SoundCloud and YouTube channels. We organise regular online workshops and link with diverse groups to deliver learning activities and exchanges, so don’t hesitate to send us your request. DublinCastleEducation@opw.ie
