Doors To Elsewhere

An inclusive theatre ensemble for adults with disabilities living in South Dublin County

Tallaght Community Arts creates opportunities for artists and the people of South Dublin County to explore together the transformative and celebratory power of the arts for the wellbeing of all. Our work focuses on participatory arts, encouraging and supporting people of all ages to be involved in the making of art.  We put people at the centre of a cultural process. We make work in the heart of the community; in schools, community gardens, football stadiums and individual people’s homes – as well as in designated arts spaces.


In accordance with National Government directive in relation to Covid-19 and in accordance with health and safety guidlines for the health and safety of our staff, audiences, visitors, participants and artists. Tallaght Community Arts will extend its closure subject to further directives. All scheduled events during this time will be postponed with alternative dates to be determined.  Thank you for your understanding and consideration in this matter
