Arts and Place

MA, PGDip, PGCert

Full time and part time 

 

Developing skills and knowledge for the generation of artworks in response to place and in arts residencies. Open to practitioners and curators working in any art form including performance, writing, soundart, moving image, photography, digital art and fine art. The course places particular emphasis on collaborative practice in response to place. The programme involves residency-based learning at Dartington and at three other hosts around the country. Arts residencies are a significant part of the contemporary arts industry and of contemporary art making. We are increasingly confronted with complex challenges that require new ways of knowing and forms of collaborative engagement and practice, which can be addressed in this master’s enquiry. This course enables you to develop your creative practice and your professional practice knowledge and network alongside each other.

A full-time (1 year) or part-time programme (2 years) with 4 x 30 credit modules and 1 x 60 credit dissertation or final major project module. The taught (30 credit) modules are six weeks’ long. The first six-week module is delivered at Dartington and the subsequent three modules each involve 10 days fieldwork with a host organisation located around the UK with supported e-learning inbetween. Students have optional access to bookable studios and workshops at Dartington.
