MA Arts and Cultural Enterprise teaches you to generate original ideas for arts and cultural events as well as how to realise them.

Considering postgraduate study but looking for part-time and flexible options? Our MA Arts and Cultural Enterprise course teaches you to generate original ideas for arts and cultural events as well as how to realise them.

Alongside critical and creative thinking, you will acquire business skills which are highly attractive to potential employers. You will learn how to manage creativity, but also how to bring creativity to management.

MA Arts and Cultural Enterprise acknowledges that we are living in a fast-changing, globalised world, which presents a great number of opportunities and challenges for cultural innovation. This Masters Programme takes these changing conditions as a starting point to engage you in developing new knowledge and skills in order to manage cultural projects in the UK and around the world. It has been developed specifically in response to an increasing need for multi-skilled individuals who can both generate the ideas for original arts and cultural events, as well as provide leadership for the teams that realise them. These individuals will be dynamic, responsive, and fluent in public and private sectors, and have the ability to collaborate and develop networks.

The course addresses a contemporary shift within the cultural economy towards experiences and events, and away from the artefact. It is a response to multiple new forms of artistic and creative practice (interdisciplinary, time-based, socially-engaged, etc.), which demand new, hybrid forms of cultural management and organisation, and in turn, a new pedagogical approach from higher education institutions.

The course is aimed at graduates with some years of work experience who wish to challenge themselves by gaining a critical understanding of our world today as well as skills in the design, planning and production of creative events in the broadest sense and operates through a blended-learning delivery model, by means of face-to-face and online teaching, in either a two-year part-time, or up to five-year flexible mode.

To find out more about MA Arts and Cultural Enterprise, the course leader Andy Marsh, will be holding an online information session on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 1pm (BST). Please register to attend here.
