Strategic Plan

The board and staff at Fire Station Artists’ Studios believe in a policy of reviewing and updating our strategic plan on a regular basis. This keeps us focused and allows us to evolve while remaining connected with all our stakeholders.

Strategic plans guide the staff and board in bringing the organisation forward each year in each area of support for professional visual artists.

Our mission

Our mission is to enable contemporary visual artists with recognised potential to sustain a practice of quality and integrity. We do so through providing affordable residential and studio spaces, practical and evolving resources, professional support and development opportunities in a unique building in the heart of Dublin’s historic north inner city, with a local, national and international remit.

Our Values


We are ambitious for the organisation and for others: for the artists who live and work with us, for the arts community as a whole, and for society at large. We create an environment that supports innovation and enquiry, and we provide opportunities to artists to learn     .


We support artists at critical stages in their careers through the provision of affordable live/work spaces and facilities, as well as providing them with opportunities for professional development. We also seek to foster a better understanding and appreciation of the arts as a vital part of a healthy society and vibrant economy.


A community of people has a shared interest or ambition and works together for the common good. Being part of a community gives a unique sense of belonging. We seek to create that kind of connection and to play our part in the communities we belong to, particularly for the visual arts community at home and abroad and our local community.
