In support of NUI Galway’s role as Official Legacy Partner of Galway 2020, NUI Galway has set up a Steering Group, chaired by Professor Dan Carey, to co-ordinate the University’s extensive internal programme of activities to mark the European Capital of Culture year. Working across multiple strands, its purpose is to develop a cultural legacy that will have a lasting impact on Galway’s creative arts sector and the university.
To discuss the activities being led by NUI Galway during 2020 and beyond, we would like to invite you to an Open Meeting on Thursday, January 23, 2020 @ 12 noon in Room G010, Ground Floor, Hardiman Research Building. This meeting is an opportunity to describe the range of activities supported by the university in this context, to meet staff from Galway 2020 with whom we are collaborating, and to raise any questions you may have about how to engage with Galway 2020.
The meeting will include a number of 5 minute presentations from staff within NUI Galway and Galway 2020 with an opportunity for questions and answers at the end. The meeting will also include a presentation from Marilyn Gaughan-Reddan, Head of Programme at Galway 2020, who will update staff on the cultural programme and give an insight into plans for the official launch event on February 8th.
Those interested in attending are asked to register for the event by Tuesday, January 21, 2020.
A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
