To raise the profile of the music and arts of Ireland throughout Britain and to celebrate the many contributions that Irish people have made to life in this country. The charity’s objectives are to provide access to and participation in traditional Irish music and arts through classes, workshops, access to materials, resources, promotion and performance.
The Irish Arts Foundation (IAF) was established in June 1998 as a Registered Charity (No. 1101657) and a Company Ltd by Guarantee (No. 4927919). It is supported by a number of public and private funders in Ireland and Britain.
We work extensively with a number of partners both locally and nationally and pride ourselves in the delivery of high quality professional arts and educational programmes.
***The Centre for Irish Studies in collaboration with the Irish Arts Foundation is carrying out a pilot study to ascertain the viability of of distance learning MA in Irish Studies.The pilot course would follow the same structure of the MA in Irish Studies which is currently offered at our London campus, and would include:
- A virtual learning seminar
- Dedicated teaching and learning materials
- Skype lectures
- Other distance learning methods.
Most importantly, it would feature regular face-to-face seminars and tutorials in Leeds, facilitated by the cultural programme of the Irish Arts Foundation, as well as an induction and an annual summer school in London where you could meet up with other students.
If you are not from Leeds or Yorkshire we would still like to hear from you and where you are.
We would be very grateful if you would take the time to answer a few questions on the survey monkey link and if interested provide us with your contact details. Interested respondents will be invited to an exploratory open day seminar and pre-registration day in Leeds in March 2014.
