NOISE Dublin


NOISE Dublin is the Youth Arts programme offered by South Dublin County Council Arts Office for ages 13 – 25 years. Through a variety of festivals and programmes NOISE Dublin provides support and opportunities for young people to learn, train, experience and work in the arts.

The goal of NOISE Dublin is to ensure that young people have a chance to take part and progress in the arts either through one-off events or long term career plans. On the site you'll learn more about our festivals and programmes, funding opportunities, jobs, internships, residencies in the arts and hear from professionals working across the arts, creative industries and cultural sector.

You can find the site here - - and find out more about opportunities for young people in the Arts.

One of our NOISE Programmes, NOISE Music, recently announced that they are launching a free DJ programme called the NOISE Music DJ Collective (NDJC). This programme will run in Tallaght Library every Tuesday from 6pm to 8pm commencing 23 January 2024. The first term will end on Tuesday 25 March with a live DJ event in The Loft in Tallaght Library.

The NOISE Music DJ Collective is for young people aged between 14 and 18 years old, and it consists of free weekly workshops delivered by experienced Musician Educators, who are also professional DJs working in the industry.

Participants in the programme will learn how to use industry standard professional DJing equipment to master mixing skills such as beat matching, looping, and adding effects. For young people who already have some experience we will help them to bring their skills and confidence to the next level - introducing them to more advanced techniques and helping them to learn more about careers in the industry. All participants will have opportunities to perform live sets at events run by NOISE Music, create mixes that will be broadcast on local radio and streamed online, and meet industry professionals who will deliver free monthly masterclasses in The Loft in Tallaght Library.
