|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject is designed to enhance the student's understanding of potential new work arenas; improve their existing promotional, documentation and presentation tools/techniques, and increase their awareness of the diversity of innovative work methods, central to the range of CCD artistic practice.
Students will be presented with case studies, which extend the community's creative capacity. The projects will be analysed for their capability to expose how the power of ideas, storytelling, commnity theatre/music/dance, collective narratives/images/icons; can contribute to the broad culture of society.
Through guest speakers students will be introduced to a range of concepts including: arts as social/cultural/creative capital; the role and value of the artist as creative agent; and the role of new media/new multi-media forms in CCD.
In addition, studies will introduce agendas for project initiation and development; such as the economic benefits of the arts, and concepts of creative ethos and creativity dimensions; taking into account the logic of change; and the impact of systems of organisation, class and control.
