Doors open at 10am each day at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. This incredible space was designed by Daniel Libeskind - with nary a straight wall to be seen and has been a source of inspiration for many years for OFFSET. Need help on how to get there? Click for more details.
The Main Stage opens at 11am each day and will host 30+ speakers over the weekend including the return of the popular OFFSHOOTS. While each of our speakers can present their work as a potted career overview, it will always have a particular focus on process, explaining their vision or philosophy…essentially whatever makes them tick. The programme will to be announced in February.
The Yellow Stage is a more intimate setting for one on one interviews, panel discussions and debates, join us for an opportunity to dig a bit deeper, explore a bit further and get that little bit closer to our stellar line-up of speakers. The full programme is to be announced in March.
The full programme will be available online to view and download one month before kick off, so get your highlighter pens out to plan out your weekend. There will also be a printed scheduled in your totebag
Veteran OFFSET attendees know the totebags are a must have, from bespoke screenprint packs & goodies from our friends at the Facebook Art Dept to the Ways&Means Magazine and Notebook. We love seeing an array of vintage totes around the city, wear em loud, wear em proud.
Every year our foyer space is packed with partner activations, workshop, printing, badge making...
We know how much you LOVE your screenprinting at OFFSET, so make sure to get your hands dirty and screen your own prints. With every day comes a new range of designs.
We are delighted that our friends at The Facebook Art Department are returning to host a great series of workshops. Details of workshops announced in March sign up for our newsletter to keep up to date.
