Off The Rails
Off The Rails was a Street Art Jam held on Railway Street in Dublin 1 hosted by All City in conjunction with DCC.
On October 19 2019. a hoarding around Mary's Mansions currently being developed by Cluid housing was transformed by some of the top graffiti and street artists in Ireland.
Over six hours 18 artists displayed their skills to the visiting crowds working on a Halloween theme and using just a small pallette of Halloween colours. Other performances on the day included local legends Francesca Arkins dance school who sparkled and shone with style and agility despite the rain.
DJ Lee Kelly kept the beat going and Costello rapped and rhymed his way to the crowds hearts. The first Jam of it's kind in North Dublin it was a great example of how a community can come together with visiting artists to create a day celebrating the new exuberant and exciting youth arts culture in Ireland.
We hope it is just the beginning of such collaborations in the future. The work is on display on Railway Street until January 2020.
