We all share and encounter small and large scenarios that exist locally, nationally and internationally— from crossing busy roads to inhaling increasing CO2 concentration levels in our atmosphere. What distinguishes creative practitioners is how they meaningfully locate themselves and others within these scenarios, and diagnostically initiate new alternative possibilities. This program provokes new practitioners into taking their first steps towards engaging in small and large scenarios by re-assessing and ‘unpacking’ notions that surround them.
The program is exploratory in essence and therefore, does not engender one specific route or specialization to do so— instead, it offers a multi-disciplinary, multi-media space that promotes multiple routes and specializations. Supported by experienced practitioners (faculty) from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, practitioners collaborate to evolve within a professional & dynamic environment, whereby studio-led & hands-on approaches enable creative visions sustainable not only in this year of study, but also beyond. Portfolios are built in application to postgraduate courses.
The pathway facilitates students who have no previous experience or education in art and design to apply into Srishti’s two-year Postgraduate Program in Design, Creative Arts and New Humanities and Design.
The Research program in Art and Design aims to inculcate competency in high-quality and rigorous research in art and design that makes an original contribution to the disciplinary core of design and creative practices with knowledge, methods, perspectives, and concepts. The program encompasses a range of scholarly research, design, and creative productions. Design encompasses a variety of creative fields, philosophies, techniques, practices, and products from engineering solutions to artistic interpretations; from systems design, to architecture and urban design. Art includes artistic and creative works, practices, and discourses that may be experimental, conceptual or critical. The program aims to nurture and develop artistic and design thinking as an inquiry based field of research and knowledge production that in turn inform better practices of art and design.
