Who the course is for: People interested in curating and managing art projects.
The students choose an individual project according to their interest and corresponding to the emphases in their studies. These projects are explored under the guidance of the teacher and reviewed in conversation by the student group. Then these projects are assessed. The student group is then split into teams where each team consists of students from different study programmes. Each team chooses one of the individual projects to develop further through to a final presentation. Furthermore, some smaller projects are introduced during the course.
The lectures address various components of cultural projects and events, which are likely to sharpen and deepen the understanding of the subject, all the way from the initial idea and the goals through to the realization. Conversation and active participation within the group is of high importance. Case studies giving a wide perspective on the possibilities are part of the lectures.
The students get an opportunity to receive training in the management of variable, cross-arts cultural projects that require knowledge and clear presentation and organizational skills. Goals and objectives, organization and planning as well as risks and the awareness of the unpredictable are closely explored during the course.
The course is intended to enhance understanding and capability of the students regarding the major components of cultural management, both in individual work, within institutions and in collaboration. Both active engagement and independency is a strong objective of the course as well as teamwork and collaboration.
Assessment methods: Projects chosen by the students are assessed from the processing of ideas, planning, group teamwork and presentations. Written evaluation is given after the course.
