Public Exposure: Student Initiated Group Project FSX309

Hobart, Launceston


In order to undertake this unit you and your peers will pitch a substantial project for public presentation, exhibition, screening or performance. For your pitch to be successful, you will need to demonstrate that the idea is achievable and that it will engage with a public audience outside of the School of Creative Arts

If your pitch is accepted, a mentor will help your team to develop and realise your project by leading you through the stages of project planning, management, marketing, documentation, reflection and evaluation.

As a team, you will be required to construct a timeline and to identify and meet your milestones.

The culmination of this unit will be the public presentation of your project and the documentation of your working processes, outputs and critical evaluation.
