NUI Galway has supported GMR since its inception and a beautiful partnership has developed between the two organisations in the intervening years. In 2017, NUI Galway officially became an Education Partner to GMR under a five-year agreement. Through this partnership, GMR works with staff and students on a variety of programmes.
BA IN MUSIC
In September 2018, NUI Galway had its first intake of students on the newly formed BA with Music. Since then, GMR has been delighted to work with the head of school, Dr Aidan Thomson, devising workshops built around live performance in the classroom as ConTempo Quartet bring students' scores to life. You can attend a taster workshop with Dr Thomson and ConTempo Quartet on Saturday 28th March 2020 in the O’Donoghue Centre, as part of the NUI Galway Open Day. Check out www.nuigalway.ie for full details.
NUIG CREATIVE WRITING DEPARTMENT
GMR with ConTempo Quartet is working with Dr John Kenny and the MA in Writing students at NUI Galway. Workshops with the Quartet (2 per semester) are being integrated into the course, exposing students to another contemporary art form, to inspire their study and writing.
NUIG CONCERT ORCHESTRA
Working with conductor Matthew Berrill, ConTempo Quartet provide mentoring to the NUI Galway Concert Orchestra.
GMR is committed to inter-departmental work. The website you are currently enjoying is the result of a partnership with students from the MSc in Information Systems Management on an exciting venture. Thank you Rose, Marvin, Hemant, Lakhya and Subhodeep!
