Learn & EngageTalking Art

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

We invite you to take a close look at artworks from IMMA’s Collection and Exhibition Programme in these welcoming, conversational tours. Talking about an artwork with someone else can open our eyes to new details and reveal things we did not see at first. These tours will help you to slow down and spend time with selected artworks, discussing them with others in a convivial and supportive atmosphere.  

Everyone is welcome to join these free tours – no previous experience is required. 

We offer Talking Art both in person in our galleries and grounds and online using the Zoom platform. This is a free programme. Upcoming dates and details are available on this page, please scroll down the page and click on the programme you wish to participate in.
