MA in Arts, Enterprise and Development


Course Description

Culture and development is a major new subject of policy and research, much of which is driven by a great challenge — how do we use artistic creativity and cultural enterprise as a force for human, social and economic progress?

Informed by development activity undertaken by international bodies such as UNESCO, the UNDP, and the European Union, this course examines the impact of arts and culture in a range of geographical and cultural contexts in ‘advanced’ and ‘developing’ countries, including post-communist societies, religious republics and conflict zones and in small-scale local economies.

You’ll consider the rights and wrongs of using arts and culture in local and international development, and explore how we can use arts and culture to further social justice as well as economic growth. Working collaboratively in cross-cultural teams, you will identify development issues, formulate solutions, devise
projects and construct professional proposals.

The programme equips you with a critical overview of the values and theoretical frameworks in the field; enables you to conduct systematic research into cultural enterprises and their contribution; supports you to critically reflect on their significance; and develops your own vocational direction and capacity for active involvement in development projects.

Explore the power of arts and culture

How are the arts, along with creative and cultural enterprise, increasingly used in policy intervention to stimulate social change and economic growth? What are the rights and wrongs of using arts and culture in local and international development? How can we use arts and culture to further social justice as well as new enterprise and economic benefit?

Create new ideas

This programme is about ideas, but also the pragmatic frameworks of cultural and social enterprise. Ideas emerge through the clash between theory and practice. This requires critical thinking, analysis and the ability to research a wide range of case material. We will devise ways of overcoming divisions, crossing borders, and communicating across cultural boundaries.
