About

The MA in Curation Practices at Leeds Arts University is ideal for those who wish to focus on the expansive field of curation by contributing to growing areas of practice within the commercial, education, arts and heritage industries.

Overview

Students in the Curation Practices programme at Leeds Arts University will develop a synthesised skill-set in preparation to enter the profession or continue further study. Perfectly situated in a specialist arts community; students will be surrounded by the study and production of creative artefacts. Specialist tutors, visiting lecturers and professional curators provide a stimulating range of study topics including audience engagement. Students will also be supported to advance their object handling and installation skills.

Key facts:

We support students in identifying curation spaces through our partnership network. This entails students being resident with a partner organisation and in close proximity to professional curators in order to enhance their skills, experience and knowledge for a career in the discipline. Students are also encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning through forging contacts and securing space for curatorial projects.

Programme Structure

Curriculum:

  • Access to specialist resources for MA Curation Practices students is negotiated based on their specific individual research interests and skillset.
  • Based in our postgraduate hub, students will have access to a range of resources to support their learning. These include open access to our library and general computer suites which are equipped with up to date industry standard software related to creative practices. Our digital printing facility also allows large scale, professional quality output up to A0. Further specialist facilities that are available according to course disciplines are outlined on the following pages where applicable.
  • We embrace a post studio culture in our postgraduate teaching. This encourages our graduates to sustain a practice. We therefore expect postgraduate students to have access to their own studios or workspaces.
