Department of Arts, Architecture & Design
The Yeats Academy of Arts, Design and Architecture is a catalyst for creativity. It provides accessible learning experiences across
creative disciplines that engage with and build on the rich cultural legacy and genius loci of our region.
Our online programmes illuminate the value of creativity and cultural contribution to society, and they seek to make a lasting contribution, locally and globally. We believe that just as poetry possesses universality as well as an acutely personal sentiment, all creative disciplines provide a perspective into how we interact and how we seek meaning between ourselves and the world that surrounds us.
We advocate that a Creative Culture can be an engine for economic and social development and become a path for economic growth. We realise that a Creative Culture is a powerful tool to engage citizens and communities, and is intrinsic to improving quality of life and living standards and can make a real difference to people’s lives.
We realise that a Creative Culture is a powerful tool to engage citizens and communities, is intrinsic to improving quality of life and living standards, and can make a real difference to people’s lives. We believe that a Creative Culture provides the best possible platform
from which to pursue key social goals, such as tackling disadvantage, inequality and accessibility.
We support the vision for Project Ireland 2040 – to have “a creative, innovative and culturally attuned society in our region, so that people, businesses and communities are equipped to further both our national economic output and our artistic endeavour
