The Ark A Cultural Centre For Children

The Ark introduces children to the joy, wonder and challenge of the arts. The Ark, in 11a Eustace Street, Temple Bar, Dublin is a unique building designed specifically for them, children from 2 to 12 explore everything from theatre, music and literature to painting, sculpture and dance. They discover what it means to be an artist, from respected professional artists as they work with a diverse range of Irish and international artists to develop original, inspirational and playful programmes for children so that they can extend their imaginations and horizons.There’s no better way to feed hungry young imaginations, or to begin a lifelong journey through culture.
The Ark is a charitable orgainisation that has organized a number of projects for children who are particularly disadvantaged socio-economically. The Ark has also undertaken large outreach initiatives, where staff members work intimately with children from disadvantaged communities as well as children in a variety of health care environments.
