This course seeks to explore at an advanced level the intersection between theory and practice within the creative arts and human services sectors. Students operating at an advanced level will demonstrate capacity to think critically and to integrate ideas with practice to achieve a tangible outcome. All 3rd year students in the Bachelor of Creative Arts and Community Wellbeing will undertake this applied project course to ensure entry level practical experience within a community setting to assist in their preparation for employment. It is particularly important that students are able to identify problems, resolve them in a creative and ethical manner, and reflect critically on the process. This course enables students to scope the relevant sector, then observe, record and participate with community while under expert supervision.

This course is a capstone course in the Bachelor of Creative Arts and Community Wellbeing. To increase employability, it is vital that that students experience practical and collaborative application of what they have learnt in the degree thus far in a community setting. Students will take part in a community project that will synthesise theory and practice at an advanced 3rd year level with a particular focus on their selected creative arts discipline. To successfully complete this course students will be required to participate in a directed community placement or to undertake a self-devised research project.
