This unit is designed to facilitate engagement with the professional practices and networks appropriate for global creative practice. Student facilitated collaboration sessions will provide a lead-in to peer-run public workshops or participatory creative projects around relevant global creative themes. Students will recognise and reflect on social cultural and ethical issues, and apply local and international perspectives to practice in the Creative Arts Disciplines. By developing independent programs, the students will interpret, communicate and present ideas, problems and arguments in modes suited to a range of audiences. Assessments will facilitate engagement with new professional networks and provide tangible experience and written evidence for future employment opportunities.
