Creativity, Youth Culture and the Arts (EDGU1001)

Creativity is now central to the ways people work in all areas of human activity. This unit of study not only allows you to understand the creative process but also involves you in the development of your own creative work. The unit of study includes live performances from comedians, musicians, actors and storytellers to help us understand the ways creativity works. Throughout this unit students will be given the opportunity to engage with ideas of creativity and the arts as both an audience member and creator of work. Students will also explore theoretical, sociological, psychological and political constructs of, and approaches to creativity.
