Municipalities, corporate institutions, festivals, community and arts organisations are increasingly looking for people with skills that straddle our various disciplines to create events that activate public spaces and bring people together in unique ways.
This specialisation will prepare students for creating unique event designs that reimagine and reinvigorate public spaces. It will provide students with an introduction to the theories, contemporary policies and design praxis governing place-making practices, pop-up events, temporary installations, street art, festivals and opening ceremonies. Students will learn how to design for both small-scale interventions and larger events in collaboration with municipalities, corporate institutions and community organisations. The subject will provide students with an opportunity to meet a variety of experts working in the field as well as create an event-design specific portfolio (documenting both practical and hypothetical work) for future employment.
