@TheDrawingRoom | Great Events in Unique Dublin Venues.
@TheDrawingRoom is an exciting project designed to develop the public’s awareness of architecture, culture and heritage through a series of events in some of Dublin’s finest Georgian town houses. It aims to provide an alternative to the concert hall or gallery setting for audiences to enjoy music and art.
The aim of the project is to invite an audience into selected houses and to encourage the audience to interact and engage with the performances as well as with the architecture of each venue. The @TheDrawingRoom series stimulates people’s innate sense of curiosity, giving the audience an opportunity to explore the various homes, their beautiful interiors and interesting histories.
Dr Áine Nic an Ríogh is artistic director of @TheDrawingRoom.
Áine received a scholarship to study undergraduate architecture at University College Dublin. In September 2011 she returned to the School of Architecture where she researched music, architecture and acoustics in Eighteenth-Century Irish Country Houses for her PhD in Architecture as an Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholar. As part of this research Áine ran a highly successful series of concerts in country houses and has since set up her own production company to produce @TheDrawingRoom where she is the artistic director. She also sits on the committees of the Drogheda Classical Music Series and the Dublin Philharmonic Society. Áine is an accomplished violinist and pianist.
