858 has been my creative tag since I was a kid and it has now developed into a creative platform for Irish creatives. I started to develop 858 into a creative platform in 2017 as a way to give myself and those around me a reason to create. After living between Dublin, Limerick and London over the last few years I noticed the abundance of creative expression happening amongst young people in London and the willingness to take risks without much consequence. As a result, 858 the platform was born.
The platform initially started out as a series of creative briefs I set with the primary aim of garnering aesthetic pieces to exhibit from a wide range of up and coming artists and creatives; it then developed into conceptually led briefs aimed at encouraging young Irish artists to address Irish social issues through their work.
858 is young, growing and here to stay.
