Welcome to UCD Parity Studios, a university wide programme connecting the rich ecology of art practice in Ireland with research and education at University College Dublin. 











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.


We offer year long residencies to professional artists who are interested in developing collaborative projects in a university environment. Artist studios, based in converted laboratories in UCD School of Physics, provide a bright working hub and supportive environment for this unique community of artists at University College Dublin.


Supported by UCD Colleges of Science, Social Sciences and Law, Arts and Humanities, Engineering & Architecture and Business  artists 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 .


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

Public feeling explores the health impacts of austerity on the individual and social body, the politics of ‘resilience’, and considers the gym or leisure centre as a space where these bodies are trained, transformed and cared for.

Each class (a circuit class, an aquafit class, and a virtual spin class) is delivered by a qualified fitness instructor: Gareth Francis (Kickstart Fitness); Eleanor Young (Aquafit), and Peter May (Cycle Studio). They will instruct the participants throughout the class, which are accompanied by a musical score and scripted soundtrack. Newly commissioned writing by Lynn Ruane and Colm Keegan is incorporated into the sound design throughout the performances.
