Two new postgraduate courses at Manchester School of Art, MA/MSc Design for Health and MA/MFA Performance, are now accepting applications.

Design for Health and Wellbeing, led by Professor of Design Kristina Niedderer, is a course aimed at those working in—or with a desire to work in—the fields of health, wellbeing and design, and will provide a holistic, preventative approach to mental and physical health provision. Welcoming students from both creative and scientific backgrounds, the course focusses on collaborative and collective approaches to public health, with students benefitting from partnerships with local charities and non-profit organisations, including the RNIB, Venture Arts and Rainbow Haven.

MA/MFA Performance will offer a versatile and practical approach to training and performance-making, with a focus on the development of new creative practices. Offering two distinct specialisations, Laboratory Theatre and Contemporary Performance, students will be able to adapt their studies before embarking on their own major project to complete their degree.

With a specialist focus on performer training and socially-engaged culture, Laboratory Theatre offers students the opportunity to undertake a residency at Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium (NTL) in Denmark, the umbrella organisation of which internationally renowned laboratory theatre group Odin Teatret (Denmark) is a part. Students pursuing the Contemporary Performance specialism will explore the creation of experimental and innovative practice, drawing on local, regional, and international networks to aid the development of an interdisciplinary ethos.

The two courses join Manchester School of Art’s portfolio of postgraduate courses that cover a wide range of disciplines including Fine Art, Painting, Contemporary Curating, Design Innovation, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design, Product Design, Craft and Textiles.
