The new ANU Master of Contemporary Practices in Art and Design

Posted on 23 October 2020

The Master of Contemporary Practices in Art and Design is an exciting new program at the ANU, and is a practice-focused, cross-disciplinary degree aimed at artists and designers who want to develop independent creative practice which incorporates research methodologies.

Situated within a collaborative community of high-achieving academics, technologists, artists and designers, the program extends students’ practical, theoretical and conceptual knowledge of contemporary practice, including a focus on specialist knowledge of materials and skills, emerging methodologies and problem-solving using cross-disciplinary or hybrid experiences.

The program facilitates hands-on learning in workshop, studio and digital environments, providing support for students’ creativity, as well as for critical and analytical thinking – connecting our graduates to the problem-solving processes and methodologies employed in the arts and design sectors. In an increasingly global and technologically-advanced world, our teaching encourages practices that are specialised, interdisciplinary and speculative, allowing for experiential learning outcomes that question the ideas and concepts underpinning a student’s own skill-set.
