The Art + Research Collaboration (ARC) programme is a practical taught Masters delivered over two years, from September to May, in Dublin city centre. The programme connects art with many other disciplines and was developed in consultation with project partners Dublin City Council Arts Office, led by the LAB, the Irish Film Institute (IFI) and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA).
ARC is open to artists, critics, curators and those working with art in many other roles. Current students and graduates have developed projects connecting art with archaeology, architecture, computing, craft, design, education, engineering, fashion, fiction, film, history, geography, geology, media, philosophy, psychology, publishing, science and theatre.
Modules are taught primarily off-campus on Thursdays and Fridays, at the LAB on Foley Street in Dublin 1 or at the IMMA studios in Kilmainham. All ARC students have full access to project-based studios, art production facilities and technical training workshops on the main IADT campus. ARC also regularly devises events and projects in collaboration with other organisations, such as The Dock, Highlanes Gallery, Pallas Projects, PLASTIK Festival and Temple Bar Gallery + Studios.
ARC is a highly practical programme and students are encouraged to install and present their work in a variety of studio, rehearsal and gallery contexts. They also benefit from full access to the IADT art studios during the summer months. Students also get professional practice guidance on their Major Project including advice on funding from public and private sources, fabrication, insurance and public liability.
Through the lecture and seminar programme, ARC students explore the context for their own practice and question how art intersects with other fields of enquiry.
Application is to IADT.
