MIMA School of Art & Design – a new way of doing things


I’m Laura Sillars, Director of MIMA and
Dean of the newly founded MIMA School of Art. Both the school and the museum are
part of Teesside University that wraps around the whole program and supports
all of the work that we do. So from day one, the students of the MIMA School of
Art will be part of a working, professional, art gallery. We’ve designed
our courses at the MIMA School of Art to immerse our students in the working
world of art. We are a creative pioneering project which based in an international
art gallery, gives curatorial and artistic excellence to our students. From
the beginning, our students will meet curators, directors, artists, educators, community workers – all of the different people who are working to make up our
field and from that point of view our students will graduate having a really
strong perspective of what their career could look like and how they can take
their career forward in this field. Your degree is a big chapter in your life and
yes we want to make sure that when you leave you can go and get job but yes, we
want you to have built new ways of thinking,
making, dreaming, imagining, working – that will fuel the rest of your creative life.
So the MIMA School of Art is an internationally exciting proposition. Our
students are contributing to making a museum not just taking a degree course.
