MA SOCIAL PRACTICE AND THE CREATIVE ENVIRONMENT
MA SPACE was Shortlisted for the GradIreland Higher Education Awards in 2019 and has been again for 2020 as Postgraduate Course of the Year in Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences
This is an established Masters programme in Limerick School of Art and Design, LIT, Limerick
Social Practice is located in the overlap of art, society and politics. It has been described as art activism, critical art, socially engaged art, social practice art, activism, political art, participatory, or dialogical art.
MA SPACE invites candidates from Art, Design and other related fields who are interested in creating art that draws on particular social topics such as; Climate Change, environmental politics, Space and Place, Food Politics, Ecology, Science and Art, Civil Rights, Globalization and Economics, Health, Trans-Global Movement, Labour, Land Politics and more.
We do not prescribe what social, or socially engaged arts practice is, each postgraduate student is supported to develop a practice that is appropriate to their development as an artist. Our goal is to support our postgraduates to initiate a way of working as an artist that is sustainable. (See the Alumni link for examples)
