Over the last year-and-a-bit, it's safe to say we were unfortunately lacking in a lot of the cultural experiences that make Ireland so special.

But now that life is finally starting to normalise, we can all look forward to watching the cultural scene thrive again over the coming months.

That's why the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin have launched Canvas D8, an exciting new cultural experience which will see some amazing street art appear in Dublin 8.

Canvas D8 is dedicated to culture thriving in the Liberties area, showcasing artwork from the famous street artist Aches. The centrepiece for the event is a one-of-a-kind light installation inside the Guinness Storehouse, which surrounds the central atrium of the building.

As part of Canvas D8, Aches' exhibition will also line the streets of the Liberties, so anyone in the area can enjoy the artwork while going about their daily commute.

The Guinness Storehouse and Aches will also use Canvas D8 to support the wider artistic community in Ireland. That's why local D8-based artist Claire Prouvost, hand-picked by Aches, has contributed five murals to the streetscape, each depicting everyday scenes from the Liberties.

Exclusive prints of Aches' work will also be on sale at the Home of Guinness while Canvas 8 is running, with a portion of proceeds from all sales being donated to SICCDA – a charity that plays a huge role in supporting local communities throughout Dublin 8’s Liberties district.

Canvas D8 is a must-see for anyone looking to get their culture fix in Dublin this summer and you can find more information on the event here.

This summer, the Home of Guinness has launched their Canvas D8 series, a space for culture to thrive in the heart of Dublin’s exciting Liberties district. This includes a new streetscape art gallery surrounding the Home of Guinness, a seven storey high immersive light sculpture, and a range of music and food events to be announced during the summer.
