MA optional units in Arts, Health and Wellbeing
The Manchester School of Art at MMU will be rolling out new optional postgraduate units from autumn 2013 and Clive Parkinson is pleased to be delivering one of these focusing on public health and wellbeing with an emphasis on inequalities; prevention; promotion and protection. This unit will introduce students to the notions, ideas, principles and practices of art and design for public health and wellbeing. A series of delivered lectures, seminars and workshops will discuss and explore the role of design in Prevention, Promotion and Protection. It will enable the location of these ideas into individual or collaborative practice. The unit will commence with a symposium identifying key art/design issues in the public health field.
