Founded on a strong dynamic between students and staff, the Fine Art MA is for disciplined artists who want to develop their work both through personal tutorials and interaction within an informed, ambitious peer group.
The course is taught by a group of experienced and well-connected artists and curators. You follow a highly personalised programme of study and contribute to the overall group experience in a weekly series of lectures, seminars and crits.
You will have the opportunity to exhibit your work and curate group exhibitions, while also completing an extended essay and slide presentation for your assessment and as the basis of your future professional practice.
MA Inclusive Arts Practice is a brand new course and it’s trying to make art and art education more accessible to people with learning disabilities and also those people who might not access art or might be, for some reason, excluded from art.
Choosing the course The course perfectly fitted with what I wanted to be doing with my life next. I’ve always had an interest in art and have been doing it throughout my life. In particular though, it combined with my interest in working with people with learning disabilities and I had never seen a course like this anywhere in the country. Finally, I was living in Brighton already so nothing could be more perfect!
About the course Course leaders are people practicing in this field as well as academics, so they have real practical knowledge and application about the work and their level of expertise is great. The course also offers a wider political understanding of exclusion. I’ve really valued the practical opportunities on the course, like working alongside the Rocket Artists. To have the range of visiting speakers here has also been great. For example, the head of occupational therapy, art therapists and community learning disability team workers have all come in and talked to us.
I have benefitted from being able to use studio space – I get to use the carpentry areas for example if needed. There is so much available if you want it. If you are a photographer you can use the dark room, and the library is also a fantastic resource.
3 top tips about the course 1. Have a real interest in social inclusion.
2. Have an understanding of why art is important and can help and support people to be more socially included.
3. Have a passion for art and a wide interest for art application and practice.
Living in Brighton I have lived here for ages, so it’s my home! I love being by the sea and it’s great that Brighton’s not too big. You can have a great social life without having to travel too far. Being close to London means you have access to exhibitions and other events.
