The Barbican Creative Learning Department at the Guildhall School in London are currently recruiting for the third intake of the BA in Performance and Creative Enterprise which is delivered in association with the Barbican Centre.

The Performance and Creative Enterprise degree enables artists from a range of backgrounds in particular storytelling, spoken word, music and theatre to develop their performance, production, collaboration and leadership skills for employment in the arts industry. This unique programme focuses on the development of performance craft, creating new work as part of a cross-arts company and working in community settings to create participatory and socially engaged work.

 

With teaching staff that includes Jacob Sam La Rose (Malika’s Poetry Kitchen, Roundhouse Poetry, Barbican Young Poets) Rick Holland (Warp records) and visiting artists such as Paula Varjack (Anti Slam) and R A Villanueva (Apples and Snakes) there are ample performance and professional development opportunities. Throughout the course there is a focus on cultivating employability through key enterprise skills such as fundraising, marketing and pitching proposals. I have attached an e-flyer for the course and further information can be found here.
