Dublin Learning City

Dublin is Learning. Learning for Work, Life and Fun.

The Dublin Learning City Project is an exciting collaboration between IADT and 4 other HEIs. Together with Dublin City Council our goal is to make Dublin a Learning City.

We are a cluster of Higher Educational Institutes: IADT, Marino Institute of Education, NCAD, TCD and UCD. Together in collaboration with Dublin City Council we are working to make Dublin a Learning City. We are funded by the HEA through the PATH fund and our focus is on supporting the access of under-represented groups to higher education.

A learning city is one that mobilises its resources to promote inclusive education at all ages, in families, communities and workplaces, fostering a culture of lifelong learning that utilises the power of modern technology. Dublin is applying for membership of the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities as part of this project.

The Dublin Learning City Festival takes place from the 8th to the 12th of April 2019 and aims to be a showcase and a celebration of learning in all its forms, across the city. Our aim is to encourage participation in learning activities at all levels, including basic education, community education, vocational education and higher education.

We are looking for partners for the Dublin Learning City Festival. We want to talk to schools, education centres, alternative education projects, cultural institutions, community groups, development companies, voluntary organisations and arts initatives in the Dublin area.

We will work with you to put on an event in your community. Or perhaps, you would be interested in attending an event with a group of learners?
