    The Ark creates original cultural programmes for children in a purpose built venue in the heart of Dublin.

    We seek to achieve the highest standards of arts practice for children aged 2-12 through performances, exhibitions and workshops with leading Irish and international artists. Our work evolves through partnerships, touring and research as well as professional development workshops for teachers and artists. The Ark aims to facilitate access to its work for all children.

    The programme changes regularly and ranges across the arts. We present theatre, exhibitions, workshops, festivals, concerts, readings, opera, dance, multimedia and much more. The Ark offers programmes for primary schools during school time, usually Tuesday – Friday, and is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays. Check the schedule on-line at for event details.
