This MA is founded in the belief that managing arts projects requires approaches and skills that are common to a wide range of art forms including visual art, film, music and performing arts. The convergence effect of contemporary technology on media forms has resulted in arts events and projects that are inclusive and not necessarily limited to a specific media. Managing these types of events requires individuals who are not narrowly focused but are informed in a broad spectrum of art forms.
The course is based on the idea that in order to be effective in the arts and cultural sector professionals working in the area need cultural knowledge, an awareness of arts policies at a regional national and international level, combined with organisational and marketing skills. You will explore the requirements for managing arts organisations, cultural spaces and visual and performing arts projects within the context of social, political and economic environments.
