Governance encompasses the system by which an organisation is controlled and operates, and the mechanisms by which it, and its people, are held to account. Ethics, risk management, compliance and administration are all elements of governance.
Governance frameworks are the bedrock of how the organisation is governed and is designed so as to ensure:
- effective boards,
- transparency around roles and responsibilities,
- accountability to, and engagement with, stakeholders, and
- driving sustainable business practices.
The company’s main objective is to carry out the creation, organisation, promotion and sustainable development of artistic and cultural activities domestically and internationally for social, industrial or commercial benefit resulting in the direct or indirect enhancement of Galway City, Galway County and the wider community.
