Make, Reflect, Reimagine

This course focuses on expanding your creative artistic practice in dance and related fields.

You will develop skills to contextualise, re-frame and challenge your practice and to plan research projects to resource and communicate your ideas.

Through workshops and seminars with faculty and invited artists, you will explore and discuss how your artistic ideas are conceptualised, developed, and experienced and how they can be situated within and across social, political, historical, and artistic contexts.

You will build a portfolio of work throughout the course, supported by the faculty, multiple visiting artists, mentors and peers, and you will explore how to invite audiences into relationships with your practice.

You will be part of a small group (8 - 15 students) so the exchanges are rich with peers, faculty and visiting artists.

I spent a long time looking for the right MA programme for me, and I found this one. It was a good mix of space to explore my movement practice and also bringing in my other interests like visual arts and voice
