The McNally Legacy


The McNally Legacy commemorates the artistic and educational contributions of Brother Joseph McNally, the founder of LASALLE College of the Arts. A renowned educator, artist and humanitarian, he established and enriched arts education in Singapore through the lens of his Irish roots and forged a pathway for the development of contemporary arts practitioners and thought leaders in the creative industries of today.

The McNally Legacy, with funding support from The Ireland Funds Singapore and the Cultural Matching Fund, consists of initiatives ranging from  academic fellowships to  multidisciplinary and theatre performances ,  visual art exhibitions  and  community  outreach  programmes . Collectively, these projects continue the legacy of an Ireland-Singapore partnership through a new range of opportunities for a new generation of artists.
