MA SPACE is a unique taught Master of Arts programme directed towards cultural practitioners who engage with the field of social relations as part of their work. This full-time programme is delivered online over one year.
Social Practice is located at the intersection of art, society and politics. It encompasses such diverse practices as art-activism, critical art, socially engaged art and architecture, social practice art, activism, political cultural work, participatory, dialogical and collaborative practices of art and/or design.
This MA is distinctive in that:
• It is focused on Social Practice
• It is delivered through theory and practice
• It is open to cultural practitioners from all domains.
- It is open to experienced graduates outside the art and design fields.
The course offers you a strong theoretical and critical grounding in the area of social practice. It will equip you with appropriate research skills, educate you in the roles you will play within communities/ situations/ spaces, and offer you a deep level of authentic experience and situated learning, through the delivery and documentation of your self-chosen, social practice project. The programme is delivered through an exciting mix of active learning, field research and engagement in the wider world, by both LSAD staff and a range of visiting lecturer specialists. A combination of online and on-site learning will suit the practitioner who is already embedded in a geographical or professional context.
MA SPACE is an international benchmark programme shortlisted in 2019 and in 2020 by GradIreland Higher Education Awards, as Postgraduate Course of the Year in the Arts Humanities & Social Sciences.
