Socially Engaged Arts Practice focuses on building relationships between artists, members of communities and organisations by working alongside those communities in ways that inform the artist’s practice. Through such practice, communities and individuals can be supported to articulate their own concerns and priorities. Students on the programme may work with a community in a specific area or identify a community of users from public places to collaborate with, such as schools, hospitals, museums/galleries or sites of commercial interest.
