Call for arts organisations to participate in Focus Groups on Cross Border Cooperation in the Arts in Ireland, North and South – 11 November ONLINE

We are looking for arts organisations based in Ireland and Northern Ireland who would be interested in working cross border on the Island of Ireland but have not done so in the past.

To sign up for the Focus Groups:

These focus groups are part of research commissioned by ARINS – Analysing and Researching Ireland North and South. The research is led by Dr Steven Hadley (NUI Galway) and The Audience Agency (UK). The results will be published in a report that investigates the interconnections between the arts sector in Ireland, North and South. Mapping cross border cooperation in public and industry bodies, it will offer an assessment of the existing landscape in terms of policy and practice and make recommendations for future policy design. The final report is due for publication in early 2022.

ARINS is a joint project of The Royal Irish Academy, an all-island body, and the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs, a research institute of international standing. For further information about the research, please visit the Royal Irish Academy website.
