Kings College London Principal Edward Byrne was present at the launch event for CMCI’s new “Experience Module” which is in turn part of our new MA degree course in Arts and Cultural Management. It’s a module delivered entirely outside of the classroom by eight of the university’s cultural partners.
The Experience Module gives students the opportunity to learn directly from practitioners in the arts and will see them placed with a range of partners including Wayne McGregor | Random Dance, Fuel Theatre, Museum of London, Roundhouse, Artichoke, Royal Opera House, V&A and BBC Future. The partnerships have been brokered by the Cultural Institute at King’s.
The President and Principal Professor Edward Byrne AC said: ‘This new module gives King’s students the chance to learn directly from some of Britain’s most prestigious arts organisations. This is an unprecedented opportunity for students to work with organisations such as the BBC, V&A, and Royal Opera House, and builds on the university’s strong tradition of engagement and partnership with the sector.’
Over 50 students will take part in the module. It will be taught off-campus and will give students the chance to work directly with leading arts organisations, and to put cultural management theory into hands-on practice.
