Content

The unit prepares students for the journey towards the articulation of what creativity means for them, starting with the threshold concept fundamental to all Creative Arts degrees: the intellectualisation, articulation and representation of embodied knowledge. Through engagement with theory and disciplinary practice through reading, practical research, and written assignments, students are introduced to critical reflection as a fundamental skill in academic study and professional work within the creative arts disciplines. Learning is undertaken through a series of collaborative practice-based projects. Students work individually and in groups to solve creative problems, explore contemporary practice processes in cross-disciplinary environments, and build their collegial networks with others. The unit investigates the use of self-reflexive and critical writing and practices of documentation and feedback to strengthen creative practice.
