This unit will support the creative research through a focus on aspects of student learning designed to enable self and group-critique situations. The critiques will generate and drive creative production by initiating a circuit of production, critically engaged feedback, self-reflection to stimulate new research and revised creative production. From group and individual critiques, students will be asked to identify the skills and areas of knowledge that need to be addressed in their own creative projects. The critique sessions will function as a hothouse incubator designed to strengthen the links between the student's own creative process and the reception and interpretation of work and foster connections between individual arts practice and the wider community of practice. Finally, the critiques allow students to investigate new perspectives that will broaden their approach and focus decisions concerning the direction and effectiveness of their creative arts research projects. These same skills and self-critical reflections become crucial for students looking for employment in the creative industries. This unit builds upon the work done in ACA401 Advanced Creative Arts Practice A, which focuses on an individual's creative formation and relationship with the history of ideas and emphasizes skills of critical engagement, constructive evaluation and informed interpretation.
