The IAF is a cultural agency with a national and international remit. We are excited by the unconventional, experimental, contextually rich and culturally engaged. We often operate in the spaces between architectural culture, design and spatial practice. We communicate to the public through exhibitions, talks, publications and public events.

We are looking for a curator or curatorial team to research and deliver a programme that will open to the public in June 2019 — this could be an exhibition, film screenings, discursive events, learning and outreach or a combination of all.

This residency is made possible through the Arts Council’s Engaging with Architecture Scheme.

Submission Deadline: 10th December 2018, 10am

The National Architects in Schools Initiative has been devised and delivered by the Irish Architecture Foundation since 2013. In order to establish the impact of the programme and identify areas for improvement, revision, expansion etc. the IAF wishes to conduct a comprehensive independent review of the programme in 2019.

The IAF would like to welcome tenders from experienced consultant(s) to review the programme through research, surveys, focus groups, observation and/or other methods, engaging with those who participate in the programme (students, teachers and architects), those who devise and deliver the programme and those who fund the programme, in order to achieve a 360° view on the programme’s strengths, deficits and opportunities for improvement.

Consultants or teams will be able to evaluate the project from an educational/pedagogical and architectural perspective, as well as from a feasibility perspective. To apply for the tender, you should propose how you would approach the project based on the Request for Tender (RFT), highlighting your understanding the scope of the project, your proposed methodology and your relevant experience.

We intend to recruit the consultant(s) by end of January, with final reporting occurring in April 2019. The fee for the project is €9,500 inclusive of VAT.

Submission Deadline: Monday 14 January 2019, 10am
