This first-time, unprecedented celebration of Irish arts—an initiative of Culture Ireland—will see over 1,000 artists and producers from Ireland create over 400 individual events across 40 U.S. states from January to December in all art forms, including theater, music, literature, visual arts, dance, and film. Imagine Ireland will involve dozens of U.S. partners in over 200 cities across the country, including key cities like New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
Culture Ireland was established by the Minister for Arts, Sport, and Tourism in 2005 as the state agency for the promotion of Irish arts worldwide. It creates and supports opportunities for Irish artists and companies to present their work at strategic international showcases, festivals, venues, and arts markets.
