Overview

Our Photography and Collaboration MA focuses explicitly on socially-engaged, participatory, and collaborative photographic practices.
In recent years, collaborative photographic practices have taken centre stage within the arts and other forms of cultural production and research. As contemporary photographers are increasingly using collaborative methodologies – inviting individuals and communities to share in the making of photographic works – this course offers a unique opportunity to explore lens-based forms of socially-engaged practice with internationally regarded artists and a consortium of industry partners across the UK and around the world.

Open to students from a range of backgrounds and professional disciplines, this course has been designed for photographic practitioners, but it is also appropriate for people wanting to work with photography, community, and collaboration in other ways, such as activists, community organisers, social workers, educators, cultural institution and gallery-based engagement, and education programme managers.

Through an immersive blend of independent research, critical analysis, intensive practical delivery, and self-directed experiential learning, the MA Photography and Collaboration provides a unique opportunity to explore practical, ethical and representational issues involved in working within the dynamic field of collaborative photographic practices.

Career opportunities

Regardless of your specific intentions, circumstances, or background, the MA Photography and Collaboration aims to allow students to define and work towards attainment of your goals, enhance employability, widen global community of practice, and gain a qualification that supports obtainment of successful career ambitions.

The course structure incorporates modules which are grouped into three primary areas: conceptual foundations, methodological experimentation, and professional enhancement. This conceptual underpinning prepares you to reflect critically on practices and frameworks relevant to your work while you develop collaborative projects through intensive, immersive laboratories, and the completion of major projects. The professional modules help prepare you to be innovative research-informed practitioners able to succeed in your chosen field of employment.
