Study Social Practice and Community Engagement at VCA
There are serious questions emerging in the arts about representation and what constitutes effective forms of collaboration with specific communities, especially in relation to marginalised groups.
We welcome artists from many artistic disciplines, including visual art, theatre, music theatre, dance, film and television, design and production, and music.
This one-year degree provides a way for undergraduate artists to orient their work towards social practice as they approach graduation. As it’s research-oriented, it also provides a pathway to PhD study for artists who already have an undergraduate qualification or equivalent experience.
Students undertake a series of fieldwork intensives, where they’ll witness accomplished artists conducting real-life projects in community settings.
