Each year, we will attempt to provide you with the option and opportunity to travel to participate in a professional setting, or to engage with a specific practice. This might form part of your community mark, or you might be engaging with the creation of your own work.
MAGI has a website that we use to advertise and to archive the course. From time to time your work will be featured publicly. You will be encouraged to use and to contribute to the website throughout the course. The website is structured to help you archive your work, and will be used as a major tool in the development of your personal research repository.
Each MAGI student is expected to create, maintain, track and protect their development work in the course via a digital repository, made accessible through a URL. Although we do not dictate the technology, or services you use we strongly suggest that the journal has both online and offline versions, to protect you from data loss.
Celebrations & Alumni Gatherings
Periodically, you will be invited to attend, and sometimes curate events. It is here where we celebrate one another’s work, we encounter plans and we reconnect with the community. These events can be as big as curated, public exhibitions, or as small as reading or writing or makers groups.
We see your time at MAGI as a precious commodity. This is a rare time where you are able to throw yourselves into making something significant. We want you to be able to drive it, and all the staff are here to help you being relevant, well-practiced, and masterful.
