Global Creative Arts and Industries Institute London

Global Creative Arts and Industries Institute London

In 2014 the UK government reported that the fastest growing sector in the economy was that of the creative arts. This unique program gives students the opportunity to learn about a huge industry, to explore their own abilities for creation, and to participate in a community of creativity within one of the world’s most innovative cities. London is a stimulus for international artistic culture and an environment rich in opportunities for all students looking to challenge themselves or participate in the drama of creativity. London has something for everyone, including the more than 300 different languages spoken in this hugely diverse city. Under the direction of the institute director students will be required to select a minimum of 15-credits from the courses provided, attend all designated field events, and participate in the Cheltenham Literary Festival in the first weekend of October. Students will spend the weekend in Cheltenham, attend key events and meet with writers and organizers to gain insight into the creative process and the economics, management and promotion of a major international event. Students will gain an understanding of the influential role the creative arts industry has on national and global economics. Through studying and practical experience in the creative arts, students will enhance their communication skills as well as develop awareness for the range of employment throughout the industry.

Global Seminar: The Sounds of Australia: Music, Tradition, and Identity

In the case of the indigenous Australian peoples, music took the place of a written language. Their music was the method by which tradition and knowledge passed from generation to generation. This music continues to be embedded in Aboriginal life in a way that is distinct from the Western tradition: as a means of communication, a crucial aspect of ceremonial life, and in defining identity. In this Seminar, students experience the rich musical traditions of the Aborigine culture and explore the role of music as a factor in the development of historical consciousness. Students have the opportunity to perform, compose, and record interpretations of traditional Australian music.
