Learn & EngageOverview

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.


IMMA fosters and fuels curiosity. Amongst artists and audiences alike, across all ages and across Ireland, we provide a unique and open space for contemplation, connection and creativity. We aim to provide an environment, within and beyond the gallery walls, which is welcoming and stimulating, where people can absorb and reflect, connect and disconnect from daily life. Contemporary art is of our time and helps us understand the world we live in now. We consider and reflect the evolving needs and behaviours of our audience within our programme, and in our current five-year strategy we state a clear objective to create a space for a new generation to engage with creativity, conceptual thinking and cultural meaning.

Open Campus

We see IMMA as an open campus of ideas and shared knowledge, deeply embedded in our home in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. We want to enable all to more deeply explore IMMA and our national collection of modern and contemporary art, making our open campus a centre of excellence for access and research.

Our Programme

We continue to place the Engagement & Learning department at the core of our programme and our work with artists, a key cornerstone of IMMA since its inception in 1991. Our programmes are open to all, and include gallery -based tours and workshops; studio- based programmes in our artists’ residency studio block; talks, seminars and artist-led events. Online we provide resources about our temporary exhibitions, ongoing programmes and Collection. We work with a broad range of people from formal education to a wide ranging public programme for groups and individuals. More details are availble in this section, and through our ‘Whats On’ section.
