University CollegeÂ Falmouth
MA Art & Environment: 2010
For centuries artists have interpreted and represented theÂ natural environment. It has provided materials and subjectÂ matter, as well as inspiration and knowledge.Â In recent times â€“ particularly since the growth of theÂ environmental movement â€“ there has been a dramatic changeÂ in our understanding of the many ways our society impactsÂ upon the Earth. This awareness has galvanised around the factÂ that the relationship between humanity and our life-giving planetÂ is in a critical state.
This change in knowledge has been reflected inÂ contemporary art practice. MA Art & Environment, at UniversityÂ College Falmouth, encourages a focused engagement withÂ ecological and environmental issues. Designed to give students theÂ skills, expertise and confidence to operate as a professionalÂ artist in this critical area of practice, the course will also enableÂ them to develop strategies and practices that use art as a culturalÂ agent â€“ as a tool for knowledge, understanding and change.
Students on the course have opportunities to benefit fromÂ the Universtity’s relationship with Cape Farewell, The Eden Project andÂ University of Exeterâ€™s Environment and Sustainability Institute.
