This unit will examine what an artist does and how this role shapes our understanding of the value of culture in society. It will investigate the range of modes, media and strategies artists use to develop creative practices of ambition and value that together speak to salient contemporary issues for the 21st century. It will place special emphasis on identifying and developing the necessary skill-set for creativity across thinking, making and contextualizing creative forms. Through a series of practice-based projects involving critical thinking, students will emerge well-equipped to work in a range of creative industries and bring creative solutions to other industries.
