CANVAS is a group of young people who help choose and run different arts projects that happen in the Grainstore, dlr’s youth arts facility. CANVAS is officially the Grainstore’s Youth Arts Committee and they are actively involved in shaping and influencing the artistic life of the Grainstore. They have run and managed Long Road to Longitude since 2014 with the support of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and MCD Productions.

The Grainstore, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s Youth Arts Facility, continues to be a leader in offering unique arts experiences to young people, through workshops, projects and providing a space for young people to create their own projects and events in a safe and supportive environment. We value young people’s artistic ideas and voices and provide an environment where we can bring those ideas to life.
