NUI Galway's Theatre Partners

NUI Galway believes firmly in the value of forming close partnerships with world-leading theatre practitioners, and to that end, we have entered into partnerships with a range of companies and groups.  

  • Druid Theatre - Students have opportunities to apply for an annual directing masterclass with Tony Award winning director Garry Hynes, participate in masterclasses run by Druid artists, attend Druid productions and more. 
  • The Abbey Theatre - students have access to the full archive of the Abbey Theatre at the Hardiman Library on-campus, providing hundreds of scripts, videos, images and more.  
  • Galway International Arts Festival - students apply to participate in the annual SELECTED programme, which provides unique behind-the-scenes access to the Arts Festival. The NUI Galway campus also plays host to many GIAF events each year.
