Content

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. The emphasis in the unit is on the combination of developing both the freelance skills for creative arts practice, and capacities to work to client briefs for a range of arts projects.
