Manchester School of Art 
At Manchester School of Art we place importance on experimentation and generating creative surprise. We have a playful yet serious approach to media, materials, and processes. We are intellectually and academically challenging. We have mutual respect for each other’s disciplines and foster an art and design community within the school and the city. We are creative, unconventional and professional. 

MA Performance  
The MA/MFA Performance is an exciting taught masters programme that offers a practical, versatile and interdisciplinary approach to performance-making and training. The programme provides students with an advanced and practical understanding of current performance practices, drawing on a broad range of artistic and theoretical influences. The development of new creative practice is at the core of the programme, as well as how this work might be developed and profiled in a professional context. 

Our MA/MFA Performance also offers students the chance to specialise in either of the distinctive areas of laboratory theatre or contemporary performance, or to combine elements from both with direct experience of a current professional arts context. The experience of these options is fed through a further process of critical and professional contextualisation, before students embark on the creation of their own major projects as the culmination of the degree.

MA Contemporary Curating 
MA Contemporary Curating explores the notion of curatorial practice in contemporary culture in addressing several inter-related fields of creative practice and theoretical approaches and situate them in a historical and critical context. The course explores different kinds of curatorial issues in addressing exhibition-forms and exhibition-making processes and how we conceive of spaces of production and curating as subjects with our integrated research and practice-led approach.  

You will benefit from a rich programme of events which includes Curator talks and seminars from a range of galleries and programmes, such as Liverpool Biennial, Manchester Art Gallery, Open Eye, Tate Liverpool, The Whitworth Gallery and more.
