Course content

Research at the School of Art and Design, both theoretical and practice-led, is studied within CADRE the University's Centre for Art, Design, Research and Experimentation, and focuses on new technologies and social engagement, the crafts and studio-based areas of fine art, visual communication, experimental time-based media, performativity, and representation. From the social interaction inherent in new media technologies, the theory and practice of cultural agency, experiments in dialogic collaborations for curation, to exploratory material processes for performative objects - the Research Centre investigates a broad range of artistic practices that influence the way we think, feel and behave.
