BA Visual Culture Taster Day for First Year Applicants

Professor David Crowley, Head of NCAD's School of Visual Culture invites you to an exciting Visual Culture Open Day. The BA Visual Culture offers an opportunity to study the history and theory of art and design practice in a creative art school setting. Working alongside the next generation of practising artists and designers, students are engaged in projects centered around critical writing, publication, exhibition curation and event management within the arts. This programme has no portfolio requirement and will appeal to anyone with broad interest in history, culture and society.

Our Visual Culture Open day is an opportunity to see the college in action and experience life as an NCAD student. You will have a chance to participate in a taster lecture, to meet staff and students, and to tour the facilities including the Edward Murphy Library, Ireland’s leading specialist art and design library.

The Visual Culture Open Day is at 2pm on the 13th February. The talk and tour together will be approximately 90 minutes in duration with refreshments provided.

Interested applicants unable to attend on February 13th are invited to contact for queries around the programme or any other aspect of life at NCAD.

We look forward to welcoming you to NCAD!
