Sunday 7th February - Changing Dublin


Everything is inevitably changing - and Dublin is going through a transformation that has been accelerated in recent years. At the moment, the new Dublin City Development Plan is being prepared - and since Dublin is the main theme of our sketches - you can have your say in framing the general direction of shaping your town over the next six years. Dublin City Council is calling everyone to submit their ideas and concerns - by post or email - by 22nd February. 

You can participate with your suggestions - or put your vision of Dublin into drawings. Which changes do you notice in your town or in your neighborhood? What would you like to be improved, altered, modified? Is there anything that you would like to be preserved and remain the same? 

If you would like your sketch to be added to please either post it to the WhatsApp Social Dublin Sketchers group or email it to (jpeg format). Please make it low-res and properly orientated for posting to the website. If you're on Instagram, use #dublinsketchers #urbansketchers

Looking forward to seeing everyone's work.

If you are new to Dublin Sketchers - we normally get together on a Sunday afternoon somewhere around Dublin to sketch from 2-4pm, and meet at 4pm for a drink and to check out each other's work. 

We’re doing things a bit differently at the moment. 

On Sunday 7th February, at 4pm we'll meet on Zoom to show each other our work over a drink (bring your own). You'll need the meeting ID and password to join. If you are on the Dublin Sketchers What'sApp group, you'll find the info there. If not, email before noon on Sunday to ask for the details. There'll be a waiting room to join the Zoom, so wait a few minutes to join.
