How great thou art: Facebook embraces Irish creativity

Dublin HQ of the social media giant is a hotbed of artistic activity and dynamism

This is the first year Facebook will take part in Open House Dublin. The social network's Dublin headquarters will be open to the public on October 15th but this event is now fully booked

Over the last two years, a number of artists, Irish or with strong Irish links, have participated in Facebook’s artist-in-residence programme and/or made site-specific commissioned work for its head office on Grand Canal Square next to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.

Most of the work is of significant scale and site-specific. The programme is overseen by curator Josephine Kelliher (of the Rubicon Gallery).
