The Public Age commission sought to reveal how important well designed public space is to health, well-being and positive ageing in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. It was created by dlrCountyCouncil/HSE Arts and Health Partnership, with additional grant-aid support from the Arts Council, and the open call process was run by the Irish Architecture Foundation.

The commission was awarded to The Decorators and artist Joe Coveney.  After initial research they developed the concept of The Meeting House  – a mobile structure that toured the county hosting shared public conversations between diverse groups.  

The Meeting house was intended as both a research methodology and as a prototype for a new social space.  It was a place to collect lived experiences and affect change by informing and empowering participants.

This screening will give some insights into the project and will be followed by a short Q&A by the team.
