Course content

Culture and development is a major new subject of policy and research, much of which is driven by a great challenge — how do we use artistic creativity and cultural enterprise as a force for human, social and economic progress? Informed by development activity undertaken by international bodies such as UNESCO, the UNDP, and the European Union, this course examines the impact of arts and culture in a range of geographical and cultural contexts in ‘advanced’ and ‘developing’ countries, including post-communist societies, religious republics and conflict zones, and in small-scale local economies.

You’ll consider the rights and wrongs of using arts and culture in local and international development, and explore how we can use arts and culture to further social justice as well as economic growth. Working collaboratively in cross-cultural teams, you will identify development issues, formulate solutions, devise projects and construct professional proposals.

The programme will equip you with a critical overview of the values and theoretical frameworks in the field; enable you to conduct systematic research into cultural enterprises and their contribution; support you to critically reflect on their significance; and develop your own vocational direction and capacity for active involvement in development projects.

2 Core Modules: Culture in Development and Arts, Community & Enterprise (30 CATS),
