Description

In a media saturated world it is getting harder and harder for messages to be heard.Increasingly all sectors are looking beyond the printed page and recorded communication to reach their audience.

Industries now demand a new type of practitioner who can engage all the senses of the audience - people who can integrate objects, text, sound, images and film to create meaning in the environment in the form of experiences, events and installations. Practitioners who are able to work within interdisciplinary teams will lead this emerging field.

Topics covered

The course offers a practical experience of the creative process.

You will be encouraged to develop analytical skills relating to the design of public spaces such as museums, shops and themed entertainment venues. 

You will work collaboratively to conceive, develop and deliver immersive public experiences that engage and inform. These projects will be realised in and around the heart of London.

You will be introduced to new methods of research and new ways to interpret and incorporate this research into coherent projects.

To realise your projects you will be working collaboratively with people from a range of disciplines, enabling outcomes that could never be achieved by an individual.

You should leave the course with concrete strategies for getting the most out of this challenging, rewarding and essential approach to creativity.
