Outhouse is delighted to welcome back everybody to Arthouse, our annual fundraising art auction – a timed online auction of Ireland’s well known and upcoming artists. Last year, in 2020, we held our inaugural fundraising event Arthouse and after successfully raising funds to reopen Outhouse once pandemic restrictions lifted, Arthouse will now proceed as the signature fundraising event hosted by Outhouse to raise funds to maintain and enhance the centre as a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community in Dublin and Ireland. 

Arthouse is a live and online contemporary art auction. Arthouse features an eclectic collection of artworks. The collective efforts of both artists, buyers, influencers and anyone who helps spread the news will help make Arthouse a success and will enable Outhouse to support the growing needs of our beautifully diverse community and ensure that every LGBTQIA+ person has a safe space to connect, rejuvenate, celebrate and flourish.

 Arthouse is showcasing a diverse range of affordable and investment artworks. Original paintings, limited edition prints, textiles and other 2D artworks will be represented in Arthouse. Collectable artworks by renowned artists will be offered for auction in addition to many more covetable works.

We were delighted and extremely humbled by the generosity of so many of Ireland’s artists who contributed last year to make the auction a success.
Participating artists included Conor Harrington, Maser, Leah Hewson, Thelma Mansfield, Martin McCann, Francis Fay, Niall Sweeney, John Fitzsimons, Emmalene Blake aka ESTR, Colin Martin, Stephen Brandes, Cian McLoughlin, ACHES, Kieran Crowley, Leah Beggs, Neil Dunne, OIsin Byrne, Eva O’Donovan and so many more amazing artists. 


Outhouse continues to be impacted by the pandemic with over 20 months of closure. While absolutely delighted that we are open, it is only in a limited capacity which will continue to limit the income we can generate.

We hope that the funds raised with your support through Arthouse will not only help Outhouse remain open but also support us to continue to build on the services we provide, and keep making improvements to the reopened centre and to maintain and enhance the centre as a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community in Dublin and Ireland.
