This programme is taught at the Creative Campus, the GSA's campus in Forres in the Highlands of Scotland. More information on the Creative Campus is available here. Please note that this programme is subject to validation for September 2016.

Contemporary social and economic culture is hallmarked by its complexity, whether that is social, technological, cultural or economic. Consequently, 'if we are to characterise human creativity we need to study and understand the socioemotional, interpersonal and cultural dynamics which support and sustain such activity. […] to understand the use of cultural tools and technologies and examine the ways in which interpersonal and institutional contexts for creativity are enabled and resourced.' [Miell, D. & Littleton, K, (2004: 1)]

Collaborative creativity requires an emotional and intellectual commitment to ways of working, just as much as it requires a practical and logistical commitment. The processes of collaborative creativity are as transformative of those involved as they are of the issues explored or problems tackled.
