Creativity, Youth Culture and the Arts (EDGU1001)


This unit explores the place of creativity and the arts in youth culture and society more broadly. Throughout this unit students will be given the opportunity to engage with ideas of creativity through performances and interactive tutorials and workshops. Students will also explore theoretical, sociological, psychological and political constructs of, and approaches to creativity and how they apply to their own developing creative capacities. This unit engages arts and artmakers by exploring performances and the creative processes behind those performances. The assessment tasks also allow students to make their own creative pieces.
