Course content

This course is designed for students to refine their subject specific practice through creative industry experience, studio based experimentation, contextual research and critical dialogue, to enable them to graduate as professional artists within the wider context of contemporary arts networks.

During your time with us, you will be encouraged to undertake independent contextual and theoretical research that will improve your capacity for independent enquiry, creativity and professional practice.

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in group exhibitions, residencies and live projects as we work closely with key cultural organisations within the North West. These include: The Center for Chinese Contemporary Art; Hotbed Press; Islington Mill; Castlefield Gallery; International 3; Salford Museum & Art Gallery; Artworks; Mark Devereux Projects; and HOME.
