Course Summary

Course overview

This course prepares the next generation of creative practitioners for future careers where transcultural collaboration and the communing of knowledge is essential. MA Creative Transcultural Practices enables you to develop your enterprise, activism and leadership within your chosen field while engaging fully with emerging global priorities affecting the urgency for change.

MA Creative Transcultural Practices is for graduates with established creative practices. The course encourages you to develop inquiry in – and between – cultural perspectives. It offers you structured opportunities to encounter and debate transcultural dynamics so that you are prepared for cultural exchange and co-operation.

The course explores the following themes: Cultures, Histories and Futures; Social Transformation; Critical Ecologies; Pop Cultures; and Creative Technologies. This course is structured to facilitate international practice and co-operation within communities of interest, some of which is connected through Shared Campus activities. Shared Campus is an international network of specialist art and design universities established to overcome barriers to cultural exchange.

Assessment methods

Assessment is focused on reflection and process-based learning. As such, you will be required to maintain a detailed portfolio of evidence. There are regular moments for self-assessment and peer-to-peer evaluations, and these will contribute to the evidence used for assessment. Assessment evidence includes: Reflective journals; Documentation and presentations; Word/image essays; Self and peer evaluation; Participation in debates and discussions; Realisation and communication of an individual programme of practice.


The final major project is forward-looking and propositional. In this unit you may be pursuing independent projects but will still be working closely with your peers through collective discussion and review. Your final project consolidates the transcultural base of the course and you should aim to maintain the network and relationships developed through your studies.
