This unit will support you to develop your research essay. The choice of research topic will be in direct response to the work undertaken in ACA401 Creative Studio and the development of key themes, issues and ideas developed from oral and written discussions within ACA410 Contemporary Debates in the Creative Arts. The essay will sit alongside the creative work produced in Trimester 2 and/or Trimester 3 that will have been brought to resolution in ACA491 Creative Research Project A and ACA493 Creative Research Project B. The final essay will take the form of a mini-dissertation rather than an exegetical account of the working process and creative practice. The aim is to produce a publishable piece of research that addresses a key idea, issues or theme in the creative arts.
