2024 Programme Opportunity

Open House Dublin: Open to All


Do you have something you’d like to include in this year’s Open House Dublin?

Open House Dublin is a free festival of architecture taking place across the city and county from 12-20 October 2024.

The festival offers a diverse and exciting range of building tours, talks, lectures, workshops, and a dedicated weekend for children and young people, Open House Junior. Across the last 19 years, tens of thousands of people have taken the opportunity to explore Dublin and its stories. 

Open to All is a new opportunity for individuals, groups and organisations to have their ideas seen or voices heard by the Open House audience across Dublin.

There are so many incredible buildings, neighbourhoods, initiatives, histories and lived experiences of Dublin, and this year we want to give more people the opportunity to be included. We believe that Open House should reflect Dublin and you, so we’re inviting you to pitch anything that you would like to open up to or share with the public during Open House Dublin this October. Would you or your organisation like to run a tour or event for children or families? Perhaps you have an idea, a workshop, or a conversation you want to host this October? Is there an area of Dublin that needs to be visited, something you love and are proud of,  a building you would like people to know, or an exhibition that needs a platform?

Each year, the IAF has offered unique and joyful access to Dublin city and county through Ireland’s largest architecture festival, Open House. This year will be no different. But, this year, we would like to offer people the chance to be part of the festival itself, to be part of the programme. If this interests you, send us your ideas and we will let you know what we think.

Send us your ideas by 1 July using this online form and we will come back to you. 


Terms and conditions

All decisions about the Open House Dublin programme are at the discretion of the Irish Architecture Foundation.

Inclusion through Open to All will not necessarily result in funding for new projects or ideas as the majority of organisations and individuals participating in Open House do so on a voluntary basis. However, it is the IAF’s policy to ensure artists are paid appropriately when participating in our programmes, and fees will be offered where relevant.
