The Summer School will provide students with an overview of Singaporean society, its history, culture and arts. We will meet with arts managers, policy makers, artists, and educators, participate in a public forum and attend performances at the Singapore Arts Festival as well as attend Exhibitions at various Museums and Galleries.
This seminar course will focus upon current issues in the arena of international arts management and will take the form of a study abroad summer school program. It will draw from a broad spectrum of the field such as international models of arts funding, public policy making, and legal aspects of the performing, visual and media arts. The aim of the course is to enhance students’ experience in the international sector of arts management.
We shall explore, through the lens of Singapore, whether it is possible to maintain distinct art-forms and cultural identity whilst also being responsive to technological and other forms of change.
