The Social Democrats are not ruling any other party in or out when it comes to forming a coalition.
The party launched their arts and culture policies this morning, where they proposed drama as a Leaving Cert subject.
They are also proposing mandatory funding from local authorities towards the arts.
Speaking at the launch, Dublin Central candidate Gary Gannon said any potential coalition partner would have to buy into the party's values.
He explained: "We're not ruling anybody in or out.
"I will say... when we sit down and if we're in a position to start looking at what sort of coalition it will be... it will be about what we can get.
"Can we get a national health service, investment in publicly funded childcare, investment in the arts? It will be about the programme, it won't be about the personalities."
20 Social Democrat candidates will be contesting next week's general election.
The party had three TDs elected to the Dáil in the last general election.
However, they had only two TDs - co-leaders Roisín Shortall and Catherine Murphy - when the Dáil was dissolved earlier this month due to the departure of co-founder Stephen Donnelly in September 2016.
