Creative Arts: Producing and Curation

Your Course This is a one-year, full-time master’s programme. It defines creative producing as the practice of realising an artistic vision by putting in place the practical steps needed to deliver that vision to an audience—whether the work is in the performing arts, literature, visual arts, or an interdisciplinary area. It sees curation as the assembly and delivery of artistic experiences for audiences, whether those experiences are in the form of arts collections, digital objects on a website, or a programme of performances in a festival (among other possibilities). The programme runs these two strands throughout the academic year, ensuring students have well-balanced skills in these two overlapping areas. You will also gain hands-on skills in writing about the arts and your work for public audiences. This programme also includes a module on career development in which you carry out an internship with an arts organisation and participate in the Galway International Arts Festival’s SELECTED! programme. The programme concludes with a practice-based dissertation. Career Opportunities Graduates will be able to follow employment opportunities in museums, galleries, libraries, arts centres, arts festivals, cultural centres and producing for theatre companies, arts organisations, arts festivals, and state sponsored arts bodies. Depending on subjects studied at undergraduate level, graduates of the MA will be eligible to apply for PhD programmes in a variety of arts and humanities disciplines and will also have opportunities for doctoral studies in practice-based research.
