Enjoy a Summer Outdoor Programme of free activities, including evening events and family focused Sundays

IMMA Outdoors is a dynamic programme of free events that activates the museum’s site, through artist led events, performances, music, talks, screenings, workshops, open studios and tours. The 2023 programme includes IMMA Nights,an evening series of events taking place every Thursday, and Sundays at IMMA a new family focused day. There are also six exhibitions to visit in the galleries throughout the summer.

IMMA Nights, on Thursday evenings from 6pm, offers a variety of events including talks, dance, book launches, performances and open studios, alongside DJs and live music in the Courtyard. Throughout the summer IMMA will share its site with cultural organisations, initiatives and artist groups creating a hive of evening activity in Dublin 8.

Sundays at IMMA is a new family focused day that offers artist led workshops, bespoke garden events and music in the Courtyard. Highlights include an artist workshop with artist Navine G. Dossos who created the visually stunning wall mural in the Courtyard, Kind Words Can Never Die.
