When & Where
PSU Art and Social Practice
PSU’s Art and Social Practice MFA is composed of a unique combination of individual research, group work, and experiential learning. The program’s blend of critical and professional practice, collaborative social engagement, and transdisciplinary exploration produces an immersive educational environment. Based in Portland, Oregon, the program operates out of Field Work, a downtown storefront classroom and event space. The program’s Flexible Residency model allows for travel and even the ability for students to reside outside of Portland during their course of study. A weekly student organized visiting artist lecture series promotes the understanding of a wide range of approaches and methodologies. An annual conference on socially engaged art practice brings together an international group of artists, curators, scholars and members of the public.
