SELF-GUIDED FAMILY RESOURCES
Family Resource – eye.see
eye.see is a fun, interactive and easy to use self-guided resource for families visiting IMMA. It is a series of beautiful viewfinders inspired by artworks from the museum’s Collection, including Max Bill Doublement, Iran do Espírito Santo Untitled (Keyhole) and John Newling Maquette for A Turning Mutability. eye.see helps families to look closer at artworks on display at IMMA, and comes with an information card which provides questions for parents / carers to use to help support your conversations. Why not pick up eye.see from our bookshop for €2 so you can peep through keyholes and pop out circles to see what lies behind them! eye.see can be used at home or in other places for further exploration and observation.

PROJECTS & RESEARCH
The Engagement and Learning Department has initiated and participated in a range of projects and research to promote access to modern and contemporary art. Most projects are medium to long-term action-research projects intended to inform IMMA’s own policy development and practice and cultural policy development in general.
Art | Memory | Place Programme
Art | Memory | Place is a year-long programme of talks and events taking place over the course of 2015-16 in the context of the ‘decade of centenaries’. Focusing on artists whose work addresses themes relating to memory and place, the purpose of this programme is to broaden and deepen the current discussion about the subject of remembrance and commemoration and to take account of such work.
The What Is_? Programme
The What Is_? Programme aims to provide an introduction to some of the key concepts and themes in modern and contemporary art for a general audience. The programme comprises talks, booklets and web-based resources.
ARC + IADT
The Master of Arts in Art and Research Collaboration (ARC) is a practice-based masters programme offered by the Institute of Art, Design & Technology (IADT) and co-directed by Maeve Connolly and Sinead Hogan. ARC is a full-time taught programme delivered over two years, running from September to June, supporting art-focused enquiry through practice-based research. The programme has been developed in dialogue with project partners such as Dublin City Council Arts Office, led by the LAB, the Irish Film Institute and IMMA.
