Content

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