Apply for Membership


A4  opened it’s doors to their Arts Studios and Community Education Centre during the summer of 2014. If you want to know more about us have a read here!

We use a modular membership structure, allowing artists and makers to build a membership that suits their needs and this keeps their monthly costs to a minium. Our members can move freely around the building and avail of facilities or workspaces as their work dictates.

Regular members have 24/7 access to our shared studios and workspaces, meeting room, project room, screen-printing, workshop, electronics area, darkroom, shared equipment, shared materials and much more. For an additional cost members can add a locker to store materials and work (€10-€80pm), or a personal workspace €100pm. We also have temporary workspaces available to rent on a 1-2 month basis for regular members who have an upcoming show and require more workspace for  short period of time only.

We aim to offer an affordable alternative to the traditional private artist studio, with additional access to a wide range of facilities & training and an educational programme.

Please note, we  DO NOT OFFER Hot Desks unfortunately and we do not cater for commerical projects such as webdesign companies etc (Sorry!)

We are however eager to hear from artists, thinkers, makers and doers working in a wide range of disciplines including fine arts, textiles, film, research, electronics, woodwork and more.

As a socially engaged organisation we have keen interest in applications from artists working in the following disciplines: Social Practice, Social Justice, Social Intervention, Socially Engaged, Dialogical, Participatory, Critical Thinking & Research, Activist, Political, Relational, Community, Collaborative Art or New Genre Public Art.
