Representing Intercultural Meaning: Exhibition Making

Module code: MS7124

Module co-ordinator: Dr Christian Morgner

In this module, you will study how a film festival or exhibition is organised, designed and curated, learning about the different formats and management structures. You will collaborate with other students on the development of an idea for an exhibition under the guidance of the course tutor before you start organising your own event which will address a wider social topic such as conflict, intercultural understanding, poverty or colonialism. You will learn how to translate and communicate a complex cultural idea to a particular audience.
