Research in Art & Design Education and Collective Practice
What is the significance of material practices and embodiment for artistic research and education? How can we develop an art-driven, interdisciplinary pedagogy? What are the main challenges when it comes to forging transdisciplinary connections between the arts and sciences in education? What are the current developments with respect to art mediation in museums? How do pivotal topics like the climate crisis, intersectionality and decolonialization—influence our view on education in the future? 

A learning community
We pay attention to contemporary developments in art and design education, considering it to be an expanded and interdisciplinary field that also includes socially engaged practices in art. The curriculum is designed for educators in the fields of secondary, vocational and higher arts and design education, educators in museums and community arts, as well as artists and designers with an interest in pedagogical practices. The course prepares graduates to engage with formal educational structures as well as with informal learning environments or collective practices. Peer learning and being part of a learning community is a key feature of our programme. 

Taking time: deepening and expanding existing practice
The MA Education in Arts is a part-time programme designed for working professionals and recent graduates. The programme has a modular structure of seminars, which take place every two weeks. Our course accepts students from the Netherlands and abroad (within the EU). For a detailed overview of our programme and staff, please visit our website.
