Media formats have undergone a rapid process of diffusion and diversification, and the different kinds of venue and opportunities for viewing media have multiplied: online, mobile media, small and large screen venues and gallery installations.

This course explores the practical & theoretical aspects of creating a Festival or Exhibition, including conception, planning, communications and management of people, product and facilities, budget, promotion and legal issues through to the final staging of the event.

Students will have the opportunity to gain practical knowledge of Festivals and Exhibitions through Industry placement, experiencing first hand the selection, organisation and exhibition of media exhibits in a particular context, focusing on a particular point of contact between object and viewer, between Media and audience.
