Individual Project Work 1

Bachelor’s level
15 credits (ECTS)


During the summer of 2021, the Individual Project Work 1, will explore socially engaged arts practice with specific focus on questions of place and communities. The course will support students to develop projects (either as individuals or in partnership with other students enrolled on the course). Given the circumstances of COVID19 students will be encouraged to critically respond to the challenges and opportunities of arts in the public realm at a time of social distancing.


Since Gothenburg University has made the decision to limit all campus teaching, the course will not be able to have any physical meetings, but will have to be offered completely at a distance. The course coordinator has planned for this scenario and is experienced in teaching distance learning. Read more about the decision on GU's website.

During the summer 2021 there will be no access to HDK-Valand locals / There is no possibility to access any technique.

Teaching staff include Professor Mick Wilson, Magnus Haglund, Dr Sarah Tuck, Kjell Caminha, Åsa Sonjasdotter
