The Arts and Festivals Management (Joint Honours) (Hons) course at the De Montfort University equips you with the skills in teamwork, marketing and management theory, fundraising, business planning, licensing, health and safety, programming and cultural policy, that you need to become a leader in the cultural arena in theatres, music venues, galleries, museums and festivals.
Practical modules are also delivered via workshops in our dedicated events office and the venues where the events are taking place. They entail group meetings and supervised sessions for planning, preparation and delivery of your events above and beyond the timetabled classroom teaching.
Assessment is tailored to the module contents and learning objectives and in Arts and Festivals Management this is predominantly coursework - essays, reports, critiques; finance exercises; case study analysis; group work - practical work/reports/presentations and a final year dissertation. One level 4 module has an exam.
There are many career opportunities open to our graduates from arts organisations to the events and festivals industry to even working in film and TV. For example Matthew Russell is Executive Producer at The South Bank Centre, Claire Van der Zant is Business Director for Ingenuity, (business consultants for brands and agencies), Saskia Collins is Artist Liaison Manager for Save the Children, Adele Robinson has won a coveted place on the graduate scheme with the prestigious Ambassador Theatre Group, Amisha Karia is Head of Collections and Paintings at Paintings in Hospitals, Charlene McManus is a Company Director for Debbie Allen Associates Management (who look after Sue Perkins and Bradley Walsh) and Dan Jones has set up his own successful company Festaxi, counting Festival Republic among his clients.
