Problems with Membership Renewal

There appears to be ongoing issues with the website where upon membership renewal, the membership expired notice and restrictions are not being lifted. Sincere apologies for this inconvenience. We are working to resolve these issues as soon as possible.

Website Back Up and Running!

Dear Members,

We're delighted to have our website back up and running! We were experiencing technical issues that were out of our control and so it took us longer to get back on line than we had anticipated. You can now renew membership here on the website if it is out of date. 
Apologies for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience and understanding. 
 

Yours,

ATAI National Committee. 
 

Futureproof, can STEAM point the way?

A talk will take place on STEAM at the LAB Gallery, Dublin on Thursday next, November 30th, 3pm - 5pm. It sounds like a fantastic event that would be of interest to any art educator. This is a free event, but places are limited. Booking through Eventbrite. Please see the link below.
