Accenture’s Women on Walls at DCU – Open Call

Accenture’s Women on Walls at DCU is a campaign that seeks to make women leaders visible through a series of commissioned portraits that will create a lasting cultural legacy for Ireland.

In February 2020, Accenture in partnership with DCU announced an Open Call to Artists to commission a series of new portraits at the DCU Glasnevin Campus.

The Future-Tech Building located at DCU’s Glasnevin Campus is home to DCU’s entire School of Health & Human Performance and is at the forefront of DCU’s international reputation for excellence in science, computing and engineering disciplines. These specially commissioned portraits will recognise the pioneering achievements of five extraordinary women and enhance the visibility of historical female leaders in STEM.

Accenture’s Women on Walls first iteration began in 2016 with the Royal Irish Academy and later in 2019 a new partnership with RCSI saw eight portraits introduced to their historic Board Room at St Stephen’s Green.

For more details about the Open Call, please access:

Closing date for submissions is 5pm Friday 17 April. For all queries relating to this campaign or the Open Call to artists please contact: womenonwalls@businesstoarts.ie
