BA Arts with Community is a three-year programme for artists who want to explore performing and/or production arts in community contexts. Whether you are a performer, writer, musician, dancer, storyteller, production artist or filmmaker, this programme will encourage you to develop your own artform, facilitation practice and voice, as a socially engaged practitioner.

It is ideal for self-determined learners who are motivated by the positive impact that that the arts can have. Students will investigate the performing and/or production arts creatively, collaboratively, and ethically, with a range of people and settings, all underpinned by practice, theory and research.

We will continue to update this page as more information becomes available. In the meantime if you would like to know more about studying this programme, please email our Recruitment & Admissions Team:
