University of Galway has supported GMR since its inception and a beautiful partnership has developed between the two organisations in the intervening years. In 2017, University of 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, University of 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. GMR also offers placements to students of the BA to gain valuable experience in event management, social media management, programming, archiving and more.
MA in Writing
GMR with ConTempo Quartet is working with Dr John Kenny and the MA in Writing students at University of 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.
Working with conductor Matthew Berrill, ConTempo Quartet provide mentoring to the University of Galway Concert Orchestra.
MSc in Information Systems Management
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!
GMR also enjoys collaboration with the University of Galway Alumni Ensemble on performances and recordings.
