UWE Bristol and Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio run an MA/MFA course in Creative Producing, the next cohort starts in September 2018. We are accepting applications right up to the beginning of September.

For more information and links to the application process please visit the Digital Cultures Research Centre site at UWE, Bristol: https://www.dcrc.org.uk/study/masters/mamfa-creative-producing/ 

The role of Creative Producer has grown significantly in the creative industries, and has begun to encompass the overlap between film, theatre, music, digital, visual art, installation and publishing. Our programme is designed to be flexible, and can be run over one year, or part-time over two years. The course is split 50/50 with a focus on analytical thinking and on placements with established producing organisations.

The cultural sector need producers who are familiar with the demands of creative technology and are able to lead multidisciplinary teams. The producer is able to create work that resonates with a contemporary audience. They will be the future leaders of venues, festivals, creative tech companies and producing houses. As our creatives are coming from ever more diverse backgrounds and disciplines - our producers will be able to match that ambition, and drive it forward.

Aimed at emerging producers, theatre makers, those with a professional interest in traditional art forms and digital technology, the programme provides a pathway to a career in the arts and culture or a step towards further postgraduate research. A unique feature of the course will be working placements with key arts, digital and tech producers in the southwest, and an opportunity to manage a creative project. The course will cover all aspects of the creative journey from formulating the idea with creative teams, to funding, and project management and evaluation.

There will be 15 places on the course, with two 50% subsidised placements for BAME students supported by Stephen Lawrence Trust.
