This unique course, the first of its kind in the UK, builds on this country’s significant history of community-based and socially engaged art initiatives addressing social and environmental issues. You will be encouraged to take creative practice beyond the institution to build on your own interests, networks and communities. Creative skills are developed in an effective and targeted way, and grounded in critical understanding and theory.

This practice-based course is one of the few postgraduate programmes in the UK specifically designed for cultural practitioners who wish to make a difference by developing their work in an outward-facing way. You will leave the course well-equipped to pursue self-initiated projects and commissions or develop your work through the cultural and community sectors.

Course highlights

  • Experienced practitioner-led teaching.
  • Off-site project work based on your own interests, contacts and communities.
  • A programme of lectures, seminars and external visits to inform and enhance your practice.

  • An university context that supports interdisciplinary working.
  • Access to London's thriving scene of social engagement, cultural activism and urban renewal.
