Course content

Our Photography and Collaboration MA focuses explicitly on socially-engaged, participatory, and collaborative photographic practices.

In recent years, collaborative photographic practices have taken centre stage within the arts and other forms of cultural production and research. As contemporary photographers are increasingly using collaborative methodologies – inviting individuals and communities to share in the making of photographic works – this course offers a unique opportunity to explore lens-based forms of socially-engaged practice with internationally regarded artists and a consortium of industry partners across the UK and around the world.

Open to students from a range of backgrounds and professional disciplines, this course has been designed for photographic practitioners, but it is also appropriate for people wanting to work with photography, community, and collaboration in other ways, such as activists, community organisers, social workers, educators, cultural institution and gallery-based engagement, and education programme managers.

Through an immersive blend of independent research, critical analysis, intensive practical delivery, and self-directed experiential learning, the MA Photography and Collaboration provides a unique opportunity to explore practical, ethical and representational issues involved in working within the dynamic field of collaborative photographic practices.
