Whether you are a formal learner, or just curious to find out more, we can help you to engage with creativity, conceptual thinking and cultural meaning at IMMA.

Talking Art Conversation Starter

Are you sick of talking about the weather? Would you like to experience artworks from the IMMA Collection from the comfort of home? These Talking Art packs are free to download and explore ten different artworks from IMMA’s Collection. Our ‘Conversation Starters’ will encourage you to take your time, look closely and prompt you to consider different connections and interpretations of the work. No experience necessary!

Why not try these Talking Art Conversation Starters with family and friends at home, or over the phone. There is no limit to the number of participants – the more the merrier. Talking about an artwork with someone else can open our eyes to new details and reveal things we did not see at first. There is no need to rush, so get comfortable, take your time to discover and remember, there are no right or wrong answers. Have fun! 

We hope you enjoy these Talking Art Conversation Starters. We would love to hear your feedback. If you’d like to send us your thoughts, email us at [email protected] or leave us a voicemail on the Talking Art phoneline at 01 612 9952.
