Artistic curation processes and techniques will be explored as a model of practice from which students will learn how to creatively select and assemble media elements to create personal or brand identities, stories, and narratives. Students will analyse and experiment with curatorial modes of information discovery and collection. A hands-on approach to the practice of digital curation will develop students’ editorial prowess and aesthetic sensibility through their curation of a digital content gallery.
