Students will begin to develop and work on a creative arts project in their chosen discipline. This project will continue into ACA402 Advanced Creative Practice B. This work will be undertaken with supervision. The course work and assessment in this unit that will support the development of the project, will be framed by three questions: "Who Am I? Where do my ideas come from? and What do I do?". These questions focus on the ideas that artist are responding to a cultural context in which their work is the response to the issues and ideas circulating and gaining currency or that go undetected. The question of an individual's context and relationship to history and culture will be explored through a series of special seminars, site visits, reading, viewing, reflection and the making of creative work where students seek out what their creative identify is and how this identity is shaped by their culture. This investigation will also drive the development of the creative work.
