characteristics of management into the cultural field in which you wish to specialise. You
will be equipped to critically reflect on policies, procedures and practices informed by
theory, which will enable you to stand out from peers and be a fully participative and
engaged member of the creative and cultural community. Our research-rich learning
environment combines an emphasis on enterprise, employability and business

evolving globalised sector. We will provide you with opportunities to build skills needed
for cultural entrepreneurship, creative flexibility and resilience, and engaged relationshipbuilding

within the dynamic businesses, organisations and practices that make up these
industries. Personal development is achieved through self-reflective exploration and
working in diverse groups and teams.

As a graduate of this programme, you will be part of an active global network engaged in
this rapidly developing field, enriched and supported by our Creative Partnerships with
leading cultural providers in the Northeast and beyond, including for example the Baltic
Centre for Contemporary Art, Tyneside Cinema, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums. You
will be equipped to challenge existing practices and orthodoxies and contribute to
innovative and creative solutions through your independent approach to contemporary
practice. You will be driven by a curiosity to explore both aesthetic forms and their social,
political and cultural implications.

This programme will also equip you to continue Postgraduate research at PhD level.
