Tallaght Community Arts Centre opened to the public in July 1996, located in Virginia House, a restored 1837 farmhouse, near The Square Shopping Centre in Tallaght.  In 2003, the Virginia House site was sold in order to generate funds for the development of a purpose built arts centre for South Dublin County, located near the Luas at Tallaght Cross.

PARTNERSHIP: As an organisation we have established a number of long term initiatives in the areas of cultural diversity, youth at risk, older citizens, people with disabilities as well as young emerging artists.

We work in partnership with local and national agencies to foster sustainable community development with the arts playing a dynamic role in addressing the needs of Tallaght and the wider South Dublin County communities: geographically, culturally and socially.

Our regular local partners include; South Dublin County Partnership, ACT (Active Citizen Together) Cheeverstown House, Dominic’s Community Centre, The Dyspraxia Association of Ireland, New Horizons, St John of God’s, St Michael’s House and both Clondalkin and Tallaght Traveller’s CDP’s.

We are cultural tenants at RUA RED South Dublin County Arts Center in Tallaght since 2009.
