The Screen & Design Industry Project engages students with new ideas and approaches to creative screen & design practice in and beyond their discipline knowledge, through the experience of encountering and critiquing traditions that inform contemporary professional practice.

The program structure and delivery gives students experience working with and being led by industry professionals on creative projects that address real-world problems within a cross-cultural perspective.

The program is designed to provide students the unique challenge of unfamiliar and/or different creative thinking and practical methods. It offers the opportunity to relate such thinking and methods to cultural specificity and its traditions and practices other than their own.

The project process will follow a design thinking methodology. However, ideation and creative outcomes should incorporate multi-disciplinary knowledge and skills, ensuring a broad range of students are able to link learning outcomes to their specific discipline across Screen and Design practices. The professionals involved in guiding the students are from a variety of creative backgrounds and bring extensive experience and knowledge to the project and its process. Project responses should engage audiences through storytelling and motion, using a variety of technology to solve the assigned design problem.
