Our mission

To raise the profile of  the music and arts of Ireland throughout Britain and to celebrate the many contributions that Irish people have made to life here. 

The charity’s objectives are to provide access to and participation in traditional Irish music and arts through classes, workshops, access to materials, resources, promotion and performance.

The Irish Arts Foundation (IAF) was established in June 1998 as a Registered Charity (No. 1101657) and a Company Ltd by Guarantee (No. 4927919). It is supported by a number of public and private funders in Ireland and Britain.

We work extensively with a number of partners both locally and nationally and pride ourselves in the delivery of high quality professional arts and educational programmes.

The Irish Arts Foundation have been awarded level one PQASSO (Practical Quality Assurance System for Small Organisations) accreditation. The PQASSO quality mark is endorsed by the Charity Commission as meeting the hallmarks of an effective charity.
