Arts & Media Showcase Event

Event providers: University of Salford

Join the University of Salford at our MediaCity campus as we showcase engaging workshops delivered by current PhD students based on their research. Students will be able to take part in a variety of workshops across different disciplines within Arts & Media to experience what studying an Arts & Media course at university is like. Students will be able to take part in three out of the six available workshops over the course of the day.

Workshops available are:

Game Changer: Body-mind awareness for performance – In this workshop students will learn about motion capture and explore the relationship between technology , the performer and movement.

Deconstructing Disney: Society, Culture and Creativity – In this workshop students will explore how Disney films shape our attitudes, experiences, and belief systems, and common archetypes and stereotypes within Disney films ultimately influence how we view ourselves and others. 

Fairy Tales – In this Creative Writing workshop students will explore our relationship with fairy tales and how we can use them as a key to unlock our own buried treasure.  

Film Theory and scriptwriting – Students will explore how film has been used in the past to make and break stereotypes, find out what film scripts look like and learn how to adapt film scripts from literature.

Indian Folk Art – In this workshop students will be introduced to Indian Folk Art with a focus on Henna Designs. Students will learn about the history, uses and cultural significance of Henna and have a go at creating their own designs. (No Henna is used during this workshop)

Chinese Contemporary Art – In this workshop students will have the opportunity to explore an art exhibition of Chinese artist Cao Fei through virtual reality headsets.
