The unit aims to guide students in understanding and expressing their own unique perspectives on creativity. It begins by emphasising a key concept that underlies all Creative Arts degrees: the intellectualisation, articulation, and representation of embodied knowledge. This concept highlights the importance of developing the ability to analyse, communicate, and present one's creative ideas and experiences. Throughout the unit, students engage with theoretical concepts and practical applications through various activities such as reading, practical research, and written assignments. These activities foster critical reflection, which is considered a fundamental skill in both academic study and professional work within the creative arts disciplines. By encouraging students to think deeply and critically about their creative processes, they develop a stronger understanding of their own artistic practice. Learning is undertaken through a series of collaborative practice-based creative projects. Students will work individually and/or 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.
