The Institute of Art, Design & Technology is currently developing a two-year taught Master of Arts programme titled Art Research Collaboration MA (ARC), for commencement in September 2014. The programme will be delivered by IADT teaching faculty such as Dr. Maeve Connolly and Dr. Sinead Hogan. This innovative programme will incorporate research groups developed in collaboration with project partners such as Dublin City Council Arts Office, led by the LAB, the Irish Film Institute and the Irish Museum of Modern Art.

The ARC MA programme is open to artists, writers and curators, or those whose research focus identifies art thinking and practices as a significant component. The course intends to support a strongly interdisciplinary enquiry into areas that through research might be related and/or be applied to art, such as philosophy, psychology, media production, film, education, history, literature, archaeology, geography, publishing, design and architecture. Modules will be taught primarily off-campus but students will also have access to art production workshops and the extended facilities on the main IADT campus. In year one, students complete a series of taught modules, participating in tutorials and critiques designed to support the development of their chosen research projects, and also work in small groups toward the realization of public-oriented projects. In year two, they can either work independently, supported by regular meetings, or as part of the research groups developed in collaboration with the Dublin City Arts Office, IFI and IMMA.

Applications for the Art Research Collaboration MA should be received by IADT’s admissions office by Friday, May 9 at 4pm. Subject to places remaining available, late applications may be accepted. Please note that as this is a new programme it is subject to validation.
