The Field Experience course is a central component of the Mike Curb Master of Arts in Creative Enterprise and Cultural Leadership curriculum. This trip is a unique opportunity for students to be immersed in the creative and cultural industries of a specific city (outside of Phoenix Metro) in order to experience how art design, and culture can shape communities and economies. Students participate in a field excursion to a destination such as Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, or another city to learn from professionals and industry leaders who are pushing the boundaries of their disciplines and forging new ways of connecting arts to other fields and to the city. The curriculum is designed to demonstrate the ways in which innovation and creative work in the cultural sector impact a city writ large.
Previous trips have included sessions with the Apollo Theatre, Maker City LA, Creative Arts Agency, Sony Studios, Creative Capital, NEW INC and BAM among other organizations and initiatives. Opportunities for networking with interdisciplinary professionals and to participate in local art and design events are also a part of the trip schedule.
