Through a critical program of artistic self-assessment and practical business tasks, this Unit of Study seeks to equip students with the tools to successfully present their creative product and carve out a unique artistic space for their future endeavors. The program is of relevance to independent-minded composers and performers seeking to identify and contextualise their individual artistic niche within a broader music community. In addition to providing students with ongoing tools to evaluate personalised artistic goals, completion of this unit will provide practical and strategic skills in analysing their potential market, securing stakeholders and developing planning approaches that successfully bring creative enterprises to fruition.
