Draíocht Visitor Survey 2019 – Help Us Get Even Better!

It’s one of our goals to review and reimagine the experience we offer our audience through our communications, both online and physically when you’re in our building, as well as dealing with us in person. This survey is anonymous, and we’d like you to be as honest as possible – it’s your chance to tell us what we do well, and what we could improve on. The survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete, and has 3 sections with mostly tick-box questions. 

On completion you can choose to enter a competition to win one of 2 Draíocht Gift Vouchers worth €50 each (your survey answers will remain anonymous, we'll take you to a separate page).

CLICK HERE to complete the Survey.
Thank you in advance for your time, we really do appreciate it.

Strategy 2018-2022 - Inspiring a Passion for The Arts

April 11, 2018

Draíocht’s Five Year Strategy (2018 to 2022) was developed in 2017 through wide consultation with key internal and external stakeholders, using workshops, one-to-one interviews, a public online survey as well as a review of our body of work since our Opening in 2001. This process was invaluable. It defined our ambition and laid out a clear set of priorities to achieve it.

Our new strategy presents a vision which may be familiar - of an Ireland where everyone has the opportunity to enjoy and be enriched by the arts. It is a vision shared by many organisations and individuals working in the arts and beyond with each of us contributing to its realisation in different ways. How we work towards that vision stems from our name: Draíocht meaning magic. We seek to share the magic of the arts through presenting a year-round programme of work, by creating opportunities for participation and by supporting artists, all the while bringing our values of welcome, fun, magic, belonging and nurture, to life.

This strategy sets out where we will now focus our efforts and continue to distinguish Draíocht as one of Ireland’s foremost arts centres, grounded in its community and a model of best practice in work for children and young people. That being so, our priorites over the next five years are, with imagination and ambition, to develop our programme by supporting artists, respond to our community (people and place), create outstanding work with and for children and young people, build strong and effective partnerships and ensure our sustainability. 

Should you wish to discuss any aspect of the strategy, please do not hesitate to contact Emer McGowan, Director on 01-8098027 or on emer@draiocht.ie
