Walk into a museum, supermarket, corporate headquarters or any large public space and a story is being told. How, what and why are some of the questions you’ll be asking on this new type of MA.
The course is unique because your colleagues come from a range of disciplines, not just your own. It pioneers collaborative practice among designers, curators, writers and project managers. The purpose: to develop meaningful narratives for both the cultural and commercial sectors.
The course grew out of industry demand for a new breed of practitioner who can tell stories that engage all the senses of the audience. It is for people who can work together to integrate objects, text, sound, images and film into the spatial environment.
So, what will you do on the course? Students create and develop solutions for visitor centres, exhibitions, museums, historic sites, themed entertainment venues, shopping experiences, branded environments, corporate events and product launches. Throughout your work, you’ll be encouraged to hone a critical perspective. By examining and challenging conventions, you’ll produce fresh, innovative approaches and solutions.
Course length: two years (three days a week).
