Tyrone Place, Inchicore captured at night lit up.

Veronica Dyas is working with the young people of Core Youth Service on the project X MARKS THE CORE since October 2023 and has a studio space in The Lodge.

Veronica is researching with young people the development, formation and communication of their experience of living in Inchicore, where Core Youth Service and Common Ground are located. At the heart of X MARKS THE CORE, is the participation of young people, and how they believe they are seen and heard, and the creation of their cultural voice in public as a response to that experience.

Facilitation, Action & LOVE are crucial to her practice. Veronica works with communities of identity, purpose, and or place. She makes work that investigates contemporary living, acknowledging the visceral reality of past trauma while always focused towards healing. Her play My Son My Son (2018) interrogating class, gender(s) and education was staged at Project, Mermaid and Axis Ballymun. She holds a B.A. (Hons.) in Drama & Theatre Studies with Sociology from Trinity College Dublin and an M.A. in Text & Performance Studies from RADA & King’s College London.
