The first unit/ subject 1 will examine the social, cultural, artistic, philosophical and ethical content and context of CCD practice. Teaching and learning approaches will examine the current community contexts of the creative arts as a community based practice in Australia and Internationally. Study will be conducted through lectures, readings, group discussions, and visiting talks from some leading practitioners. The readings will be drawn from current Australian and International CCD best practice. Students will be made aware of the principles of community development – empowerment, social change, human rights, cultural values and diversity, local knowledge, inclusiveness, community building, sustainability and global/local interfaces. In addition, students will conduct individual research on a CCD program and present a talk on what underpins that program.
Display a broad local/global understanding, with high regard for human rights, equity and ethics.
