Hobart, Launceston


Collaborative work is integral to working in and with the creative and cultural industries. This unit encourages you to take supported creative risks and introduces you to work-integrated learning methods and practices. Students and staff will propose creative projects that will be available for you to choose on, from across Media and Communication, Fine Arts, Music and Theatre and Performance. Many projects will exist at the intersections between those disciplines. Over the course of the semester, you will be introduced to interdisciplinary approaches for devising and refining creative work, and best practices for working in a team environment that mimics the emergent cultural industries.
