About Aisteach

Aisteach is a repository and archive for historical documents, recordings, materials and ephemera relating to avant-garde artistic projects in Ireland since the 19th Century. Established in 1974 by composer Frank Ó Conchubhair and poet Síle Ní Maoldaomnhaigh, the centre has operated variously at Parnell Square Dublin, An Rinn and finally its current home in Joshua Lane, Dublin 2.

Access to the archive is available for student research by appointment – if you would like to get in touch, fill in the contact form here.

Following the receipt of a generous grant from the Arts Council of Ireland, we are currently digitising a considerable portion of our archive. Please call back to the site periodically to find more of our archive digitally available for all.

If you would like to use any of our recordings or images, or perform any of the pieces mentioned on the site, please email [email protected] for information on copyright and score access.
