Content

This unit is to be undertaken entirely with the student's creative project supervisor or supervisory team, to write a research essay. The choice of research topic will be in direct response to the work undertaken in ACA401 Advanced Creative Practice A and the development of key themes, issues and ideas developed from oral and written discussions within ACA410 Contemporary Debates in the Creative Arts. The essay will sit alongside the creative work produced in Trimester 2 that will have been brought to resolution in ACA402 Advanced Creative Practice B. The final essay will take the form of a mini-dissertation rather then an exegetical account of the working process and creative practice. The aim is to produce a publishable piece of research that addresses a key idea, issues or theme in the creative arts.
