Founded in 1972, Irish Arts Center is a New York-based arts and
cultural center dedicated to projecting a dynamic image of Ireland and Irish
America for the 21st century, building community with artists and audiences of
all backgrounds, forging and strengthening cross-cultural partnerships, and preserving
the evolving stories and traditions of Irish culture for generations to come.
Our multi-disciplinary programming is centered around three core areas: performance – including
live music, dance, theatre, film, literature, and the humanities; exhibition – including
visual arts presentations and cultural exhibitions that tell the evolving Irish
story; and education – with dozens of classes per week in Irish language,
history, music, and dance.
Located in New York City, a global capital of arts and culture, Irish Arts
Center serves as a dynamic platform for top emerging and established artists
and cultural creators to reach a New York, national, and global audience, and
as a gateway for other institutions to access first-rate Irish and Irish American
Irish Arts Center is currently developing plans to construct a new facility to serve our multi-disciplinary program. The New Irish Arts Center will contain a 199-seat theatre, an 85-seat intimate café venue; studio spaces for classes, rehearsals and the development of new work; technology capability to project Irish Arts Center on the digital platform and a social environment for meetings, collaboration and conversation before and after the show.
