January Irish arts jobs & events

january 2019

a case of the januaries

Happy January! Today we kick off another term here at UCD – we’re especially pleased to be starting Semester 2 of the MA in Cultural Policy and Arts Management with our new permanent lecturer Dr Annette Clancy on board.

For your cultural calendar this week & next, events and announcements of note include:

  • Culture Ireland’s ‘Global Ireland’ conference in Dublin Castle takes place on Thursday the 24th, with an interesting (and rather starry) array of speakers commenting on Ireland’s global cultural reputation.
  • Tradfest begins on Weds. the 23rd, with one of its strongest lineups I’ve seen!
  • Bauhaus Effects is a major conference on the Bauhaus co-hosted by our School, which sold out in an eyeblink! Get yourself on the list for returns if 20th c. modernism is your jam: this is a fabulous event.
  • Francois Matarasso’s new book ‘A Restless Art’ (free to download!) about ‘the principles, practice, and history of participatory art’ has just been published: his work on arts participation is always provocative and well worth a read.

I’ve just spent the afternoon updating the jobs page with more than fifty new opportunities in the arts & cultural sector – lots to peruse and consider there, including plum roles at the Butler Gallery, ACNI, Macnas, Science Gallery, Irish Heritage Trust, etc. A few positions close ASAP, so get cracking!

    Hello, my name is Beau Bray and I’m interested in your school. I’m looking to advance my knowledge Of Classical Figurative drawing/painting and would love to see if there are any workshops that offer this type training at your school. Thank you very much for your time.

      Hi there, we are a university and don’t offer practical art courses. I would suggest checking with the Royal Hibernian Academy, and also Visual Artists Ireland, which would have further details for you.
