Thanks for stopping by… http://www.artsmanagement.ie is aimed at folks interested in the area of arts management in Ireland and further afield. It is linked with the School of Art History & Cultural Policy at University College Dublin (in particular the MA programme in Arts Management and Cultural Policy), and is written & maintained by a current lecturer in the department (that’s me, Emily Mark-FitzGerald). I’ve helped run the MA in Arts Management & Cultural Policy since 2003, and this blog is an outgrowth of that work! I’m also currently on the executive boards of the Irish Museums Association and Arts and Disability Ireland.
This blog was initiated with the aim to pull together interesting articles, reviews and features on the subject of arts management and cultural policy– stimulating discussion and reflection on our own ways of doing and being in the arts in Ireland. For those working professionally in arts management in Ireland (especially alumni and current students from our programme), I hope the posting of event notices, links and job announcements will prove a useful resource.
