The MA is jointly run by The Workshop Theatre and the Centre for Global Development. Students become applied theatre facilitators and knowledgeable about a wide range of arts and development issues.
You work with leading applied theatre artists and development specialists. You engage with key theory and examples of a range of relevant practices, through lectures and small group seminars. All theatre work is supported weekly by practical workshops in such areas as Theatre in Development, Education, Prisons, Disability, Ritual and Drama Therapy. You undertake a two week professional group placement with a leading community arts company, before leading singly or in pairs a programme of supported workshop facilitation with a community organisation. You also write a dissertation on a relevant subject of your interest.
A maximum of 12 students are admitted to this programme in order that excellent support can be offered. The intake is usually widely international and students are a significant learning resource for each other.
