    This cross-disciplinary, project-based unit provides students with a unique opportunity, working in small teams, to explore courageous, tentative or experimental projects, freed from the pressure of having to produce something that is objectively 'successful'. Assessment in this unit will focus not upon the quality or otherwise of the group-driven creative outputs, but rather upon the reflective, individual exegetical and reflective components that accompany them. This capstone unit will allow students to apply the knowledge base established in Big Stories: Culture, Memory and Narrative and It Must be True: Knowledge, Culture and Creativity to the skills developed in Reading Culture, Curating Culture.

    Learning Outcomes

    After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Work in multi-disciplinary teams to formulate and present a diverse range of creative and cultural projects;

    2. Demonstrate agility and flexibility in their planning and teamwork, in order to communicate their project effectively;

    3. Apply their individual knowledge of global, cultural and indigenous contexts to their chosen project through reflective practice; and

    4. Experiment with ideas and methodology relevant to the intersecting creative and cultural fields in which they and their team are operating.
