In this 2-credit point capstone unit, students will focus on professional practice by consolidating the work they have done to date and focusing on the career and industry context into which they aspire. Because the unit is 2cp - and accounts for a significant portion of the students’ study commitment for the trimester - the management of time is paramount in order to develop artwork, design a professional digital portfolio and collectively devise and organisation the final exhibition. To that end, students will research and discuss the integration of multiple disciplines, team management principles, creative methodology, project development, pre-production and production management. Students will then apply appropriate strategies and creative management processes in the realisation of their creative work and final exhibition.

Building on trimester 1 units that stress artistic process and sustainable practice, this production unit requires students to propose and complete a creative arts project that aspires to the standard of emerging artists, cultural producers or educators in their chosen industry contexts.
