Welcome to UCD Creative Futures Academy 

Our world is changing fast. The future is being shaped by what we do right now. The role of artists, writers, makers, designers and creative thinkers has never been more vital to our world.  

To support our commitment to the dynamic creative and cultural sectors where many of our graduates work, UCD Arts and Humanities has formed a ground-breaking partnership with (opens in a new window)IADT and (opens in a new window)NCAD, setting up the Creative Futures Academy, a €10m project funded by the Higher Education Authority’s (HEA) Human Capital Initiative.

The Creative Futures Academy offers students and creative practitioners the chance to learn new skills, develop fresh networks and embrace new possibilities. Thinkers  and leaders from academia and industry have joined forces to create new courses to support & shape the professional growth, reach and impact of the creative and cultural sectors.
