The Grainstore, dlr's Youth Arts Facility, continues to be a leader in offering unique arts experiences to young people from the county, through classes, projects and providing a space for young people to create their own projects and events in a supportive environment.
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.
Opal Lights: Willow and Allie met when they were two years old in montessori. They have been best friends ever since. A year ago, Willow wrote a song and needed someone to sing it for her. This was the beginning of Opal Lights. They have continued to write original songs that are up on youtube and Soundcloud and are working towards their debut EP. They have an upcoming gig with band mash on July 6th in the Workman's Club.
Padraig Mac Mahon: Padraig first started playing music when he was 6 or 7 singing along to the Rolling Stones and Steely Dan when his dad would play it in the car. He taught himself how to play guitar and when he started secondary school got into writing his own songs. Having played play gigs here and there with his own songs he decided last summer to give being a full time musician a shot!
Radical Centrists: Radical Centrists formed at the dawn of 2018 when Ocean and Dunnerz met Norwegian reality TV star Daddy Victor. Sick of polarised politics, they set out on a mission to unite the left and right, the black and white, the north and south, the west and the rest, the Chads, Stacys and Melvins, in the spirit of love, craic, and general cop-on. Their music inspires, triggers, and gets the noggin joggin.
The Grainstore, dlr’s youth arts facility, is supported by funding from the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.
