The Student Forum is a group of students and recent graduates who engage with The Douglas Hyde Gallery and its programming in different ways over a period of twelve months. This includes participating in reading and discussion groups, leading tours of our exhibitions and group trips to exhibitions and events. Through these engagements, Student Forum members bring their own research and artistic practices into reflections on the artworks they see, as well as into an ongoing interrogation of the purpose and possibilities of the gallery space.

The TY Project provides young people the opportunity to pursue creative ideas that question and explore the boundaries of art. The project is primarily aimed at young adults aged 15–18, people at key stages of their formative years and life regarding school subject choices, college courses and decisions relating to future careers. Our TY Project aims to ignite a passion for the arts and culture through workshops, talks and activities fostering creativity and critical thinking focusing on learning how to interpret the world around us through collaborative and interdisciplinary workshops and discussion.
