Public Art - F4002

Public Art

Graduate certificate

Public Art is a burgeoning field of practice for a range of cultural producers and has an impact on forming our perception of place. The realisation of Public Art requires a myriad of skill sets to both imagine and deliver.

Monash University’s new Graduate Certificate of Public Art is open to a broad range of industry professionals who want to develop their capabilities in designing, proposing and producing public art.

The course will build your ability to think critically and deeply about context, give you a capacity to communicate ideas effectively and develop skills to collaborate with large groups of people from a range of different disciplines.

Guided by experienced artists, designers and academics working in the field, you will gain theoretical and technical skills, detailed knowledge of processes and techniques for tendering submissions and an understanding of historical and theoretical context in engaging public art.
