Stoneybatter Pride of Place Festival 2019

The Stoneybatter Pride of Place Festival 2019 takes place from Friday June 21st to Sunday June 23rd. The festival is a 3-day neighbourhood & street festival in the heart of Dublin 7.

the Sanctuary is delighted to be a part of this community festival and we have a wide range of activities and events planned for both Saturday and Sunday June 22nd & 23rd.

We will be displaying the work of artist Andy Kohn, creator of Humans of Stoneybatter, who has captured the people of Stoneybatter for posterity. An exhibition of his Humans of Stoneybatter will run in the Sanctuary throughout the weekend, access to see the exhibit is free to all.

You can also participate in introductions to mindfulness sessions, in guided meditations, or even a drumming session. Many activities are free, but some require payment, please see the list below for details. Ticket prices for paid activities are €10 per adult and €5 per child for up to two activities of your choice, a family ticket costs €20 and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

You are also free to explore the Sanctuary garden, a delightful and contemplative space in the heart of the Dublin where you can take a peaceful moment out to connect with yourself.

We hope to develop a piece of land adjacent to the Sanctuary into an additional garden space. Submissions from students of UCD Landscape Architecture on how to develop the garden will be on display all weekend and you will be able to vote on your favourite choice (gold starts will be provided)

So come along and make the Sanctuary, your sanctuary during the Stoneybatter Pride of Place Festival 2019. We are really looking forward to seeing you.
