GMIT Centre for the Creative Arts & Media (CCAM), Monivea Road, Galway

GALWAy CITy A Destination for Creators and Artists

Galway city has long been known as a centre for creativity, arts, culture, music, drama and more. The city is alive with arts and cultural festivals, including Galway Film Fleadh and the Galway International Arts Festival in July, The Cúirt International Festival of Literature in April, and Baboró, an International Arts Festival for Children, in October. In 2014, Galway was designated a UNESCO City of Film in recognition of its strong media output. Galway is now one of only eight film cities in the world to achieve this much sought-after status. A city with such a strong creative ethos is the perfect setting for GMIT’s Centre for the Creative Arts and Media, providing students with the opportunity to engage with creative communities all year round.

GMIT’s Centre for the Creative Arts & Media (CCAM) is also located close to Galway City centre, on the Monivea Road. A GMIT campus since 1994, CCAM is based in beautiful old buildings that date back to the 1930s. The award-winning library is constructed with Irish oak displaying beautiful craftsmanship in keeping with surrounding architecture. CCAM is a hive of creative activity, and is home to a number of organisations and enterprises alongside the courses in: • Design (graphic design & illustration, animation & game design, industrial design, and fashion & textile design) • Contemporary Art (incorporating painting, print making, photography, ceramics, sculpture, digital media) • Film & Documentary (editing, screenwriting, production design, 4D design, audio production and cinematography) • The new teaching programme in Art, Design and Graphics.
