Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute
Celebrating 10 Years
In September 2020 the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the opening of its home at the heart of Trinity’s historic campus.
Over the last ten years generous supporters have enabled the Hub to establish itself as a dynamic physical and human infrastructure supporting research in Trinity’s Arts and Humanities. Its mission is to advance research excellence, drive collaborations and interdisciplinarity, and promote Trinity’s Arts and Humanities research to the widest possible audiences, highlighting the nuanced and long-term perspectives these disciplines bring to understanding the complexity of human existence and major societal challenges.
The opening of the building in the heart of Trinity’s historic campus in 2010, as Ireland and the world grappled with deep recession, was a bold statement by Trinity about its fundamental belief in the power of the Arts and Humanities to advance and enrich society at every level, promoting liberal values, providing critique, context and historical insight.
The Trinity Long Room Hub’s 10th Anniversary Programme will celebrate the achievements of the Arts and Humanities at Trinity over the last decade. It will also reflect on the profound changes that have taken place not only in Ireland, but across the world during that time, to consider, how over the coming 10 years, the Arts and Humanities at Trinity will continue to Inspire Generations.
To kick off the programme of events, Belfast-based artist Rita Duffy will launch her artwork titled ‘The Raft Project’ at the Trinity Long Room Hub on the 30th of January 2020. The photomontag mural, which will be hung/installed on the side of the Institute facing Fellow’s Square, will be on display until the Celebration Showcase on the 19th of February.Read the #Hubat10 story here
