Dublin Learning City Virtual Festival 2021

Dublin Learning City Virtual Festival 2021

Dublin Learning City Festival will run virtually from the 22nd to 24th March 2021 to celebrate and promote learning for all, through fun and creative events.

Dublin Learning City is led by the Institute of Art and Design (IADT) and Marino Institute of Education (MIE), as part of a cluster of six colleges including University College Dublin (UCD), National College of Art and Design (NCAD), Trinity College Dublin (TCD), and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI). This is a HEA-funded initiative to collaboratively promote and advance equality of access to higher education for under-represented groups. We are also working in partnership with City of Dublin Education and Training Board (CDETB) and Dublin Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB). We will link a number online event to support life-long learning and promote the concept of UNESCO Learning Cities for Dublin.

This Consortium includes five projects: Creative Arts Summer School, led by NCAD; Open Learning, led by UCD; Community Mentoring, led by TCD; Dublin Learning City, jointly led by IADT and MIE; and the 1916 Bursaries, led by UCD.

In order to create a diverse programme that includes a range of subjects of traditional and non-traditional learning, we are inviting Events Hosts all over Dublin to take part of this year’s festival. If you have an event that can take place during the festival week, is free, open to all audiences and has learning as its focus, then get in touch with us by completing this Host application form!
