Course summary

This course examines how we use artistic creativity as a force for human, social and economic progress. Warwick's Centre for Cultural and Media Policy has expertly designed this programme to focus on ideas, critical thinking and research while enhancing your professional skills. Course overview This programme will give you the opportunity to explore the use of the arts, and cultural approaches to local and global development challenges. It examines the impact of arts and culture in a range of contexts in ‘advanced’ and ‘developing’ countries, including post-communist societies, religious republics and conflict zones, and in small-scale local economies. You will consider the rights and wrongs of using arts and culture within such contexts and explore how they can be used to further social justice as well as economic growth. You will develop your vocational direction and capacity for active involvement in development projects.
