This module provides the experience, tools and skills necessary to respond to a range of curatorial challenges, individually, interactively and collectively. It provides a range of opportunity for you to respond to real-world briefs, which will build a portfolio of multiple realised projects.
The module is designed to provide active, participatory practice and discussion with professional researchers/curators, which is then translated into practical outcomes. It may include working with other areas of the wider university in broader fields of enquiry: such as media archaeology, archives, or sustainable fashion, but again, linked to specific projects and events at the time. It is thematic, but the theme will be ever-changing, emerging from areas ofcurrent research activity. The module will address core considerations of Environment and Sustainability, Diversity, Access and Representation.
Projects undertaken during the module will help define your area of independent study for the Dissertation: in this module you will be guided to develop a preliminary plan for your Dissertation project.
