The postgraduate Arts and Creative Industries Placment allows students to undertake a professional practice internship placement (including regional conservatoriums) within a music focused creative industry context. Students preparing for a career in composition, performance, arts administration, music education, historical studies etc. are afforded the opportunity to apply their advanced musical knowledge to the broader creative industries music community. They will undertake a specially designed internship placement (designed by themselves or the host) in an arts based organisation and/or 'buddy' Pulley program in one or more of the seventeen NSW regional Conservatoriums with the purpose of extending their current professional practice. The goal of the unit is for students to extend their knowledge of the arts and creative industries sector combined with a knowledge and understanding of WiL through the internship placement. Students will extend their collaborative skills and techniques for working in a teamwork setting using knowledge and skills learnt as graduates.
