Welcome to our UCD Parity Studios website.


Our mission is to create a dynamic network of  professional artists, academics, researchers and students, working at the intersections of their disciplines.  


Through our Artist in Residence Programme, elective modules and public engagement programme, we support critical thinking and creative approaches to cross- disciplinary research, pedagogy and communication.


Connecting the rich ecology of art practice in Ireland with research and education at university, we offer year long residencies to professional artists who are interested in developing their practice in a university environment. Artist's are offered an artist’s stipend, 24 hour access to artist studios , access to UCD academics researchers and students, talks lectures and symposia and UCD libraries . The studios, based in converted laboratories in UCD School of Physics, provide a warm, bright working hub and supportive environment for this unique community of artists at University College Dublin.
