The Creative Practice course from Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology will support imaginative, experimental and interdisciplinary enquiry through a range of media and approaches.
Students will choose one of four strands in which to base their study
- Contemporary art studio practice
- Digital cultures
- Film and lens based media
- Socially engaged practice
The course is structured so as to balance general and specific demands of various practices.
Students will be encouraged to work collaboratively as well as be independent, self-directed critical thinkers.
The emphasis of the course is on the student completing a large practice-based project.
This culminates with the production of a final exhibition, film screening or project presentation with a thesis demonstrating appropriate critical contextualization of the practice based work.
Targeted areas of employment for graduates of this programme lie within the extensive range of creative networks and cultural infrastructure of the city, region and beyond.
- Self-employed artists
- Socially engaged and public art projects
- Arts administration
- Film makers
