Children’s Art in Libraries Programme

The Children’s Art in Libraries Programme (CAL) is a unique initiative directly influenced by its distinctive context that seeks to provide innovative high quality arts experiences for children of all ages.

CAL is an initiative of the Dublin City Arts Office and works in partnership with Dublin City Public Libraries to deliver innovative programming for children across a broad range of art forms.

The aims of the programme are as follows:

  • To provide children accessing the services of their local library, with the opportunity to participate in and gain meaningful and imaginative experiences through the arts.
  • To provide opportunities for established and emerging artists to explore and develop their practice for Children and Young people.
  • To create commissioning opportunities that will support and nurture the development of innovative programming for children and young people that achieves a high level of artistic excellence.
