In a two-week intensive format this subject focuses closely on the development of a project idea that builds and demonstrates the creative vision that will underpin the student’s work for their final year and beyond.
The intensive takes place through lectures, visiting speakers, and collaborative practical workshops. The subject will introduce the student to theoretical and practical concepts of project realization, implementation methodologies, strategic planning, networking, budgeting, documentation, evaluation, report making, and pitching. It will investigate the issues and demands of being an artist in the broader community. It will also explore projects that align with the student’s proposed research question, identifying and refining their research practice trajectory for the year. Prior to the subject commencing the students will complete an online investigation of a series of questions that will begin a digital work journal that will be brought to the two-week intensive.
