Description

This course introduces areas that are fundamental to Drama, Theatre, Performance, Visual Arts and/or Sound and their relationship to Creative Arts, Industries and Communities post University. Building on previous CAPA courses in which collaboration, creativity and diverse approaches to performance and event making were introduced, this course focuses on application of this knowledge to professional, industry, community and other contexts as a result of collaboration and innovation. The relationship between individual input and collaborative project design and implementation will be examined.

Areas to be explored include creative innovation, basic legal requirements such as copyright and contracts, negotiating producer/financer/creative artist relationships, project proposals and examples of organizational approaches in the creative arts and industries. The course also emphasizes the use of media and dissemination of ideas for collaborative or innovative projects and the presentation of a project to various audiences, producers and stakeholders.
