BCAPRA2 Community Arts - Professional Training 2

Course description for academic year 2022/2023

Contents and structure

Field study and professional training are central elements in this program. The focus is to give you as a student a versatile experience that will enable you to work as a community artist at various arenas. The practice has a natural progression from being an observer to planning and leading activities on your own.  

Professional training will be integrated in the different subject. The student must plan and make arrangement for placements by themselves as this is part of the training. HVL must approve all placements and will assist in finalising the contracts.  

Participation in externally funded projects relevant for work in the community may also be included in the professional training.
