Skills

The Fire Station training programme for professional visual artists takes place annually. The main aims of the programme are to support artists to diversify, upskill and engage in critical thinking within their practice in a unique and intimate environment outside of the formal education system.

Skills Programme

The Fire Station brings to Dublin highly regarded artists to host workshops, giving participating artists an opportunity to develop their practice outside of mainstream education and to engage intellectually with their peers. The programme incorporates training which is to simply provide opportunities for 'making' techniques across different art forms e.g. metalwork and fibre glass.

Digital media

We provide digital media workshops for artists to support their research, documentation and the making of their art work.

Discourse

Fire Station recognises the importance of debate and critical thinking in contemporary visual art. This is incorporated into all our programming.
