Did you miss me? 🙂
Last year I took on the role of Head of the School of Art History and Cultural Policy, and regular blog updates became too difficult to manage alongside the day job. I’m still not sure how the workload will be balance out in the coming months — I’m still taking it one day at a time (like many others, I reckon!) We’ve just started our autumn term yesterday here at UCD — with 26 students in our MA in Cultural Policy & Arts Management programme, and 12 in our MA in Art History: Collections and Curating, alongside hundreds of BA students and our staff of 13. News of the Dublin partial-lockdown on Friday has certainly made things even more interesting – but still we persist!
In any case, given that we’re all living online more these days, I thought re-starting the blog would be a way to connect with folks who are looking for arts/cultural work in Ireland, returning to education, or who’ve been missing my sporadic cultural updates 😉 I hope it helps!
It’s hard to believe this blog has had more than 1.2 million hits since I started it more than a decade ago, and still reaches more than 7,600 people via Twitter and email subscriptions. Thanks to everyone who’s remained a follower, and do keep sending me on your job and event announcements. Stay well, and keep on keeping on…
