Online Edition

a creative encounter at the heart of dublin’s north  inner-city.

The Five Lamps Arts Hub is a place to go for arts and community development in Dublin’s North East Inner City.


We are best known for our flagship event The Five Lamps Arts Festival, an award-winning annual community-based arts festival which has taken place each spring in the North East Inner City since 2007.
Today, in addition to the annual festival, we run community art programmes, guided walking tours across the area, workshops and events throughout the year. We also provide project management consulting to several volunteer and community groups.
Last year, 67 events featuring over 200 artists, supported by more than 50 volunteers were hosted across the North East Inner City as part of The Five Lamps Arts Festival. The programme attracted over 5.000 guests from all different backgrounds.



Our mission

The Five Lamps Arts Hub is committed to inclusivity, participation, environmental enhancement, and the creation and presentation of locally relevant, artistically ambitious work. It aims to contribute to the development and perception of the Five Lamps area as a positive and creative place in which to live and work.
