It was our final party at the towers so we are delighted so many people came to support Matt and help us raise much needed funds for our new studio. Special thanks to Katie Kim, Owensie and Rory Francis O’Brien for playing an awesome gig for us!!

“The mission of the A4 Sounds art collective is to foster multidisciplinary collaboration, curate innovative participatory art events and broaden engagement through community arts education. The purpose of the ‘A4 Towers’ workspace is to act as a base for these group activities, as well as a resource for individual members to develop their professional practice.”

Have a look here for info about our facilities.

Resident Membership

We are looking for energetic individuals who are interested in artist led spaces and the possibilities for collaboration they offer.

We are an interdisciplinary studio and invite applications from a wide range of “artists” whether you work in education, engineering, computer programming, curation, music, TV, electronics, fine art or design etc it doesn’t matter, as long as you have a keen interest in collaboration and co-operatively run spaces.

Resident membership of the studio is based on shared responsibility (8 hours per week) for the upkeep and running of the space, and involvement in group shows, collaborative projects and proposals. Our current members come from a range of backgrounds including visual art, music, engineering, education and community based work.

To apply please send us an email at a4sounds at gmail dot com with a statement of interest, (why you want to join A4 Towers specifically), artist cv and a few examples of your work (jpgs, pdf, or link to online portfolio). Application is based on interview and committee decision.

Membership

A4 Towers membership will include:

  • Access to our facilities which include a workshop, a darkroom, screen-printing facilities, desk space, woodworking tools, and an electronics bench. Members can book time on tools from 10am – 10pm, Thursday to Sunday each week..
  • Opportunities to exhibit work and take part in organising events
  • Opportunities to hold workshops and classes in the space
  • Reduced rates for taking part in training workshops and classes
  • Access to the online A4 forum to collaborate with other artists, musicians, etc.

Numbers will be restricted to a maximum of 30 people, to ensure that each member can get access to the facilities. Membership will cost €50 per month, which is very cheap compared to other art spaces in Dublin, but will help us to cover the costs of materials, bills, rent and buy new equipment. A4 Sounds is a non-profit organisation, and our main aim with this new membership is to build a community around the space and get a buzz going. We hope that this will lead to more collaboration between creative people in Dublin, as well as more play-dates!
