Our course allows students to ‘learn by doing’ wherever possible, from writing marketing plans to creating a unique live public event in each year of the course.
When working on your projects, you will work in small teams to set up a ‘working events production company’ which will see you organising a range of arts and other events such as festivals, exhibitions, fashion shows, arts workshops, theatre productions and/or dance events.
You will plan the whole event, targeting real audiences, working with artists and performers, sourcing appropriate venues, managing budgets and writing contracts – developing your skills to produce a unique audience experience. We especially like creative events to be innovative, utilising social media, ‘viral’ marketing, PR and photoshoots.
Study is divided across taught hours, studio and/or work environment time, and independent study. Excellent professional and technical support is available and students are encouraged to experiment and work collaboratively on self-initiated projects. We expect students to spend an average of 40 hours per week on their studies, although it is likely that these hours will vary throughout the academic year.
