|Subject Overview:||This subject enables students to gain an understanding of the diversity of young people's cultural expressions. It explores engagement with popular and traditional culture, but focuses especially on the diverse ways in which different groups of young people appropriate, invent and re-invent cultural expressions. A combination of lectures, studio workshops and tutorials will provide students with the conceptual tools for understanding the role visual arts, performing arts and similar cultural activities play in young people’s learning and identities. It will examine creativity and engagement in the arts for, by, with and about young people in a range of contexts. Learning will be reinforced by fieldwork and practical assignments linked to cultural site visits.|
