University of Limerick Arts Office plays a key role in the vibrant artistic life of UL with a wide programme of cultural events. Central to our programming is to challenge the perception of what art is and what role art can play in our day to day lives. We are also firm proponents of the restorative power of art and seek to engage our community in meaningful experiences through the prisms of music, literature, dance, performance, painting, sculpture, spoken word, craft – the list is endless.
Many of our activities are socially engaged one off pop ups. We also encourage a large degree of interaction by our audiences. Our work with communities on and off campus has resulted in publications such as What Are We Like – a collection of writing by local creative writing groups and Forty Tall Tales – a celebration of 40 years of UL through the medium of story.
The Arts Office is involved in bringing the university art collections to broader audiences through a series of curated exhibitions highlighting different aspects of the art work on campus.
We welcome collaboration with faculty, staff and students and are always happy to help with projects large and small.
