Block T

BLOCK T is an independent creative arts organisation, an entrepreneurial hub and a one-stop-shop for all things creative.

We are developing our own organisational model which aims to be self-sustaining, providing subsidised support for our community of creatives while generating jobs in the cultural sector.

To date we have drawn tens of thousands of people to our buildings through versatile public programming, workspace facilities and wide range of events.

We are invested in the Smithfield area and we are proud to play an integral role in its development alongside our beloved local business, community and cultural partners.

We believe lifelong learning adds value and quality to our lives. Our educational programming is one of the core pillars offering affordable and diverse courses to audiences.

We are an ambitious social enterprise. For 2015, our goals encompass advocacy for the arts, entrepreneurial consultancy and support for Members, a creative service directory for all of our networks and an online broadcasting platform (BLOCK TV) celebrating creative and cultural talents in Ireland and abroad.


BLOCK T aspires to influence societal change through creative engagement.
