Making the Event A FSX206

Hobart, Launceston


This work-integrated learning unit will provide you with an opportunity to be guided and supported in undertaking a public creative work. As a member of a team, you will be provided with a brief. Your team’s response will be guided by a range of interdisciplinary stimuli, which may include objects, sounds, guest lectures, fine arts, performance, exhibitions and films.

You may draw on your existing creative practice and interest in your contribution to the group production, and you may document and reflect on outcomes from your own disciplinary perspectives.

Mentor/s will then assist your team to develop and realise the project by leading students through the stages of project planning, management, delivery, marketing, documentation, reflection and evaluation. This unit will culminate in the public presentation of the group project and the individual documentation of your experience.
