Artists have been slow to apply for a slice of the €400,000 set aside for art by the Grangegorman Development Agency (GDA).
The GDA announced the arts project, called “… the lives we live”, last year.
At the time, the GDA’s Public Art Working Group put out a statement saying it aims to support ideas that “add to the distinctiveness of the area, whether to do with its past history, or with emerging and prominent future”.
Some of the money has now been allocated to projects that aim to bring art into – and make art with – the communities in the area. But some is still up for grabs.
