What do your clothes say about your identity? Can an artist still break through without competing on a talent show? The creative industries is a fast-changing sector where the focus always seems to be on the tension between creativity and commerce. You may wonder how it could be any different, in a world where creativity has become a commodity. At Radboud University we address such questions.
In today’s dynamic media world, creativity and innovation are inseparably integrated with technology and globalisation. At Radboud University, we help you to develop a reflective, inquisitive and critical view of the creative industries and its relationship with economics and commercialism. We ask you to look beyond the promise of authenticity, the cry for value, or the quest for quality in the creative industries. But also, and most importantly, to never lose sight of its core; the heart of the creative industries is the cultural product or event. That is why in every course, in every debate, our starting point is the aesthetical and creative element. It’s about adding new value and significance to the creative industries.
In the Master’s specialisation in Creative Industries, we focus on the artistic product. We look at the wonderful new world where high fashion interacts with technological gadgets and where television series are gaining ground on cinema. You will also study our (post-)industrial society as a cultural phenomenon.
