Arts in Action 2022-23

Arts-in-Action returns to the campus and city of University of Galway with an inspiring programme of events encompassing traditional and classical music, theatre, film, song and dance.  Over the course of this semester, we will delve into the processes and research behind the art as well as experiencing the energy of the live performance together. We acknowledge through this programme that we are stronger together, ‘neart go chur le chéile’, and that together we can create the conditions to inspire our artistic and academic community to engage in transformational learning.   

The arts are a collective endeavour; without the audience, the artist's role is a lonely one.  With this semester’s programme we acknowledge the ‘Meitheal’ or the ‘Collective’. There is an army support behind the scenes that manifests in this joyous and challenging programme.  We are grateful to them all! Arts-in-Action exists because culture and art are important to our community and to remind us, in our busy lives, to pause in order to experience our cultural diversity and collective humanity.  We are eternally grateful to Mary McPartlan, founder of Arts-in-Action, for guiding us on this journey.
