The Dublin Project is an initiative by Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Dublin City Council (DCC) and Design TwentyFirst Century (D21C) to make a positive change in the City of Dublin by bringing their resources and expertise together to solve challenging problems facing Dublin City.
The project is a one-year, three-semester Masters programme. Each of the three semesters explores a different stage of the project: Discovery; Development; Delivery. The MA will be studio based at DIT and will use the City as a Living Laboratory and will use live DCC data to propose real solutions to challenges that the City faces. The first two semesters will run in conjunction with the Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media (GradCAM).
In each of the semesters there are charrettes. The charrettes are multi-disciplinary workshops held over several days and provide intense workings around the central themes. The charrettes will involve participants from stakeholders and the wider community working together to address issues in a concentrated manner.
