Where We Live is an explosive 10 day festival of new work from THISISPOPBABY that interrogates and celebrates what it means and how it feels to live in Dublin and Ireland right now, from some of the best storytellers and makers on the Island.
From 11-21 March, as part of St Patrick’s Festival, we’re taking over and transforming Project Arts Centre in a red-hot building occupation of new theatre, exhilarating music collaborations, rapid-response performance, playful and evocative visual art installations, an iconic one-off record fair, a town hall of ideas, and of course, a little bit of dancing to top it all off.
Where We Live 2020 is created with the generous support of our partners: The Arts Council, Dublin City Council, St Patrick’s Festival, Project Arts Centre, Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre, Cork Midsummer Festival, The Civic, Axis Ballymun, Draíocht, Dublin Theatre Festival, The Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Building on the success of the inaugural 2018 edition of the festival, this year is an even deeper investigation into some of the critical matters of the day. We’re talking about the evolving city, homelessness, migration, the climate crisis, active citizenship and the power of community.

At the heart of the festival is a passionate belief in the power of stories to provoke conversation, foster connection, create agency and engender inclusivity. The power to make us pause, rethink, reframe, and have a great night out in the process.
