Brief description

In Semester one a series of lectures and seminars by guest lecturers from across IAH will introduce a selection of case studies: interdisciplinary collaborative projects, events, festivals, film programs etc. from within the arts industry and appropriate to the four pathways offered within the Creative Arts course; Fine Art, Film & TV, Theatre, Performance and Scenography and Creative Writing. Students will be introduced to specific case studies from the perspective of the participants/artists and curators/organisers to offer an understanding of a case study from its conception to realization and all that entails. Students will relate their own self- directed research into a self- selected case study to their own independent self -directed practice based project (1)

In Semester two, lectures, seminars, group tutorials and workshops will further develop the students awareness of Interdisciplinary practices and theories towards the development of their practice based project (2) which will be an ‘Intervention’ site-responsive or site-specific temporary project that will be curated and installed within and around the Abersytwyth Arts Centre, offering an exciting opportunity for the students to directly engage with a public platform.
