Applications are open from today until Monday 15 August 2016 to be one of twenty US creative students to attend the two week Pop-up Design Studio created by University of the Arts London on Broadway, NYC.
The studio will be led by BAFTA winning digital design entrepreneur, Fred Deakin, Professor of Interactive Digital Arts at UAL, who founded ground-breaking design studio Airside and is one part of the successful BRIT and Mercury nominated electronic music duo Lemon Jelly. Successful US citizens who are students or graduates over the age of 19 will be able to learn from Fred and other top design industry specialists to experience what it is like to run an international design studio on Broadway and then create their own.
The intensive two week course Modual: run by the University of the Arts London (UAL), from 6-16th September 2016 will be held at the renowned UsTwo design studio on Broadway, founded by UAL alumni John Sinclair and Matt Miller.
Students can explore their creativity with regular mentors from leading industry experts, then create their own ‘pop-up design studios’ which will focus on developing innovative social projects that will change the world for the better. At the end of the second week the students present their projects to a live audience of NYC’s creative industries, investors and UAL’s alumni in New York.
Modual: is an innovative educational initiative created by Fred Deakin, Professor at University of the Arts London, Leader of Interactive Digital Arts, who is on a mission to prepare the next generations of graduates with the skills necessary to thrive in the modern world.
“UAL is obviously a very urban and diverse community and having developed Modual here, New York seemed like a perfect place to take this project next,” Deakin says. “I worked with UsTwo when I was running Airside and am a big fan. As well as being founded by UAL alumni it is undoubtedly the UK’s most creative digital agency and its expertise will be a perfect core teaching ingredient for the workshop.”
The Modual: workshop has been held in the UK with great success and UAL are now taking it to the international stage, starting with New York City to inspire young creatives and connect them with the international design industry – Check out the video here!
