Kingston University London

Course Introduction

Our Creative and Cultural Industries: Curation, Exhibition & Events BA course prepares you for a career in exhibitions and events. You will develop practical and analytical skills for the curation, conception, resourcing, marketing and budgeting of an exhibition or event.

The course is taught within the Department of Creative and Cultural Industries which is part of Kingston School of Art and is driven by our ethos of ‘thinking through making'. You will learn to visualise, collaborate, experiment and project manage as you work on real-world projects with other students. You will also develop your knowledge of the creative industries, exploring topics such as design theory, branding and strategy for creative organisations.

Kingston University is an associate of the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) and the Creative Industries Federation (CIF). You will receive free ICA and CIF memberships, participate in seminars and events, and have the opportunity to become a Kingston/ICA intern. Our Stanley Picker Gallery and Dorich House Museum offer you the opportunity to participate in events and gain curation experience. The course also offers opportunities to work on live projects with creative companies and institutions.
