AMPD is a next-generation arts school where you can reach beyond boundaries and boldly define your creative future.
We stand on the threshold of a dramatically new, radically different kind of arts future –
a world in which the communication of our ideas and their physical and virtual expression have extraordinary value, and are becoming the new currency of the creative economy.
For this creative future, imagination on its own is simply not enough. We need artists who are adventurous thinkers, makers, collaborators and innovators. These are the kinds of leaders we’re preparing at AMPD:
a new generation of artists, designers, filmmakers, performers and scholars with an insatiable appetite for experimentation and artistic invention, who will define the future of creativity. Read full welcome message.
