Education and Community > About the Programme

The Education and Community Programme aims to foster within society an increased awareness and understanding of the visual arts by creating innovative and inclusive opportunities for people to engage with the Museum’s exhibitions and programmes, both as audience members and participants. It also seeks to create opportunities for meaningful exchanges between artists and the public. The Museum’s Education and Community Programme is informed by models of practice which are designed to meet the needs of specific groups and to address targeted education needs. These models are documented and evaluated and their outcomes inform a broader programme which can provide access for a wide range of people.

Schools and Colleges

> IMMA invites teachers and tutors from pre-primary, primary, secondary and third-level schools and colleges to bring their student groups to IMMA any time during opening hours.

> Teachers and tutors can also book a specialised tour and/or gallery talk and arrange for their student group to meet resident artists on the Artists’ Residency Programme.

Community, Family, Adults and Young People

> IMMA provides a range of options, including guided tours, workshops, talks, discussions and studio visits, all of which can be tailored to meet the needs of a particular group.

Education Resources

> IMMA has a range of resources to support its Education programmes including publications, information sheets and workshop spaces.
