NCAD Gallery Mission Statement (National College of Art and Design Gallery)
Established in 2009, the NCAD Gallery is the public face of the National College of Art and Design, Dublin (NCAD). The NCAD Gallery, in accordance with the College’s agreement with Dublin City Council, operates as a public venue as well as a College Gallery. The Gallery supports contemporary practice and critical debate in disciplines of art and design, and aims to reflect the diversity and strengths of the College through the continual development and promotion of its exhibition and education programme. The Gallery affords an opportunity for invited practitioners, curators and writers, students and staff to experiment with, develop and publicly present their work; providing a space for research and debate within the context of contemporary practice in the immediate environment of the NCAD, engaging the wider visual arts sector and public audiences. Through collaboration and in partnering with a wide range of organisations and institutions in Ireland and further afield, its expansive visual arts programme of exhibition, projects, performance, workshops and events play a central role in developing local, national and international connections.
The NCAD Gallery exhibits a curated public programme selected by the NCAD Gallery Committee, by invitation or through advertised open calls. The Committee’s membership includes: the NCAD Director, the NCAD faculty staff and the NCAD Gallery Programme Curator. Proposals may be made by individuals or groups and should address the nature of the Gallery space and its context in the College, the city and the art and design sector. The programme curator is available to advise prospective exhibitors in advance of finalising a proposal by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.

The NCAD Gallery supports practitioner and organisation funding applications only after a proposal has been successfully reviewed by the Gallery Committee.
