This unit introduces key debates, ideas and histories of contemporary arts movements and practices in a structured framework. This will support learning about how interpretations of creative arts practice and discourses may be used as a means to both inform and explain creative work and approaches. Within this context, a key aim is to also emphasise the development of knowledge and skills for critical engagement, evaluation and interpretation to conceive a creative arts research project.
