Contemporary curating is a dynamic profession, playing a key role in setting cultural agendas and generating new ideas. In the Master of Curating and Cultural Leadership we foster a vision of leadership that is deeply diverse and non-hierarchical, forging connections between curating, audience engagement, policy, management, critical writing, promotion, production and other emerging roles. You will benefit from partnerships with a broad range of Australian and international creative organisations as well as regular connection with arts leaders and industry professionals.
The degree is flexible and customisable. In the final year you will undertake an industry-based capstone project tailored to develop your skills, build your professional networks, and open further career opportunities. You may also complete a supervised research paper, allowing you to engage deeply with a topic of your interest.
