IMMA works with a range of third level institutions to provide support for tutors and students to engage with modern and contemporary art. We support students and tutors to visit IMMA, to engage with our exhibitions and extensive Collection, its artists’ residency programme and as a site for research. We provide staff support, information and space for discussing and responding to our programmes.
