Curating Contemporary Art and Design
27 June – 8 July 2022
“We provide a highly interactive environment in which participants develop their own curatorial practices and critical perspectives while building new networks and working collaboratively together. The dynamic two-week programme is delivered by leading curators and cultural practitioners who offer stimulating opportunities to engage with the very latest developments and debates in curatorial thinking and practice from across the fields of contemporary art and design.” Dr Rosie Ram, Short Course Leader
Art and Design Portfolio Development
7 July – 23 July 2022
“The portfolio as a practice is inherently multidisciplinary. As a self-authored publication, a portfolio translates a body of work through thoughtful art direction, critical writing and content curation. A successful portfolio is the manifestation of a clarity in understanding where one’s practice is situated and how it is positioned.” Richard Nash, Short Course Leader
Contemporary Art Summer School
18 July – 5 August 2022
“This course offers the unique opportunity to look at your practice differently. I really push students to get out of their comfort zone, to shatter their certainties. I want people to walk away with a new joy in their practice and a different way of looking at what they have been working on so far.” Dr Despina Zacharopoulou, Short Course Leader
