MA in Arts Poltics at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts
The Tisch School of the Arts at New York University (NYU) invites applications for its groundbreaking MA in Arts Politics which offers an intensive one-year experience that expands the possibilities of cultural production. The MA rigorously explores the interplay between critical theory and creative practice, and provides a one-of-a-kind encounter with activists, artists, theorists and curators from diverse disciplines and interests. Students take five core courses inside the Department of Art and Public Policy, plus multiple electives throughout a major research university located in the heart of New York City. MA graduates go on to work as artists and scholars, curators and community organizers, arts administrators, educators and cultural innovators. MA alumni are actively connected to the pulse of social justice, forming a global network of engaged thinkers and doers across six different continents.
The Tisch School of the Arts offers a space of transition and reflection, a meeting place for arts activists whose work cannot be contained by a single discipline or motivation. The School pushes students to think about their place in a transnational world that must contend with issues around race, class, gender, sexuality, dis/ability and religion. An evolving curriculum examines histories of political frameworks in the arts, as well as contemporary advocacy strategies and tactics for change. Together we ask, 'How do we make the world anew?'
The application deadline is 15 January 2019.
