Independent Arts Professional supports the career development of music practitioners as they enter the creative industries. 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 endeavor. The program is relevant to independent-minded performers, composers, producers and curators seeking to identify and contextualise their individual artistic voice within a broader arts 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.
