Artsmooc aims to grow a unique ‘hands on’ research and development network of interested and specialist practitioners, affiliate partners who explore and collaborate together on new models of open pedagogy delivery, through practice based Arts Massive Open Online Courses or MOOCs.

The venture aims to explore the collaborative potential of developing and delivering a new sustainable model for accessible arts learning and practice. By partnering with arts support networks and initiatives together with new technological innovation we aim to collectively create an independent and inclusive hybrid open physical and virtual arts learning environment which supports a new dynamic and diverse arts community, with a strong emphasis back on openness and collaboration.
