Description

This multidisciplinary course explores the ways that narrative can be used as a tool to engage, explain, teach and inspire across a wide range of practices.

We  will discuss narrative theory and structure, putting this into practice as you design a series of site specific interventions in the spaces around Kings Cross.

This bite sized course will challenge you to find narrative in unexpected places and use this new insight to refresh the way you work whether through design (2d or 3d), performance, events, exhibitions, marketing, writing or many other practices .

Who should take this course?

It is particularly suitable for people working or are interested in programming for museums and cultural heritage, planning events, services or activities for a wide range of audiences.

It would be useful for anyone wanting to progress into the design of narrative environments, including designing visitor and customer experiences for cultural, commercial and community environments.

Entry requirements: None

Level: Beginners
