Course handbook


This practical course is designed to give students a platform to apply their skills and knowledge of performance in a collaborative, interdisciplinary, devised, creative project. It provides an opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills they have accrued to a professional setting and includes possibilities for Work Integrated Learning.

This course challenges students to extend their creative potentials and explore artistic boundaries that articulate with professional practices. As part of the self-directed project, students will be required to maintain a critical reflective journal that explains and critiques the project process.
