As we respond to the changing context in which we all work, Stafforshire University’s innovative short courses provide the chance to work with creative practitioners and organisations, enabling you to fully develop your potential as a professional in this area. The Postgraduate Community and Participatory Arts Programme has developed three short courses to help people using community arts to specialise and develop their expertise:
Making It Happen in Community Arts: A practically-based course that focuses on the development and implementation of participatory arts projects in community settings.
The Artist Professional Development Programme, Developing Arts for Health: A professional training programme for artists working in the area of arts and health.
Masters in Community and Participatory Arts: A professionally focussed MA aimed at practitioners in participatory practice.
The courses are designed to offer participants greater employability through the development of practical skills, a greater network of contacts in the field and help you to establish a research and evidence base to your work.
All courses provide high quality continuing professional development opportunities and are accredited so you may receive a formal qualification at either University Certificate Level (NQF Level 4) or Master’s Level (NQF Level 7). They can also be transferred onto our Masters programme, which includes a MA in Community and Participatory Arts.
