Study type Taught


‚ÄčThe role of the illustrator or animator is not ephemeral, temporary or mere entertainment. It is ecological, cultural, political and technological, challenging the momentum of the twenty-first century. Illustrators and animators now need to deploy their skills in the wider political and cultural arena with more urgency and vigour than ever.
They have the skill to help people understand a deeper sense of what is important, through mythologising our past, present, and future, enabling societies to come to terms with the uncertainty of their predicament.
We look to recruit brave, speculative, imaginative, and dedicated creative graduates who share the leading-edge-research concern for illustration and/or animation, and our instinct to imagine and explain; deploying speculative methods with transdisciplinarity at the core.
This Masters Degree in Illustration and Animation will appeal to graduates of any discipline of the visual arts as well as professionals looking to sharpen their critical and theoretical skills.
Through a combination of self-directed studio practice, lectures, seminar sessions, and reading groups, students will be closely and individually guided in their own explorations of their practice as a critical and re-directive process.
