Design for Cultural Commons course of London Metropolitan University is about the assets that belong to everyone, forming resources that should benefit all, rather than being enclosed to just a few. You'll learn about how these shared assets are created, governed, used and distributed without overuse and abuse.
In the UK, commons, and co-production are referred to in government policies and tenders and are currently being discussed in the EU parliament. Beyond teaching you to initiate your commons projects and practice, you'll learn how to raise funds and make your practice sustainable in the long term.
The course will support you in gaining membership to the International Association for the Study of the Commons. This will enable you to gain awards, as well as access international collaboration opportunities and platforms for knowledge exchange following your MA.
We'll support you in applying for mentoring programmes following your MA, to develop your practice/initiative into a viable social enterprise.
Should students want to gain employment they will have opportunities in:
- UN-Habitat agencies
- Local Government
- Partners established during the MA
- Organisations through European Commons network
- Transition towns
- Government research on future of cities
