This unit is targeted to developing skills for freelancing across the creative arts. There is a focus on project-based and applied learning through three elements: exploration of case studies linked to creative industries theory, government policy and arts social/cultural issues; practice in pitch presentations for career development; and development of a group project taking a client briefing from concept through marketing and basic budgeting to proposal presentation.
