Dorian Gray Project 10 years on.


The evening of the 24th January 2020, the Central Societies Committee supported by Trinity Development & Alumni will be joined by the Provost and current members of College to mark 50 years of the Central Societies Committee, as well as to welcome back TCD Alumni and Staff who participated in the Dorian Gray project in 2009. 

In November 2009, named after Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, the Dorian Gray Project was launched by the Central Societies Committee to celebrate student life in Trinity. Over 900 members of the Trinity community had their portraits taken in the Public Theatre in TCD. Each of these portraits, caught in an instant of time, has been incorporated into an image of Front Square below, to symbolise the living element that embodies Trinity College life, and is a testimony that College is more than just bricks and mortar, quads and cobbles – it is a living community.

All participants in the project were emailed in November 2019 with a link to their image as well as an invitation to return in order to celebrate, reconnect and reminisce.

The images taken in 2009 can be found here
