The Social Practice and the Creative Environment programme from Limerick Institute of Technology offers a strong theoretical and critical grounding in the area of social practice. It equips postgraduates with appropriate research skills, educates in the roles participants will play within communities/situations/spaces, and ultimately, offers a deep level of authentic experience and situated learning through the delivery and documentation of a self-chosen social practice project.

The core teaching staff are high profile practicing artist’s in the field of Social Art Practice.
