Community arts involve people in creative processes that have both artistic and social aims. Through practice and critical analysis students will examine arts in justice, development, health and youth settings, and specific sites such as museums. These practices will be analysed in relation to key political and aesthetic debates about the arts and social change.
This course is a hybrid course, which means that the course is taught simultaneously in two modes of delivery. The first mode of delivery is a blended course: you will have some compulsory in-class sessions on the Epsom campus and complete the rest of the course online. The second mode of delivery is a fully online course: you will join the compulsory on-campus sessions remotely using a video-conference function, and complete the rest of the course online. When you enrol you will be able to select your choice of delivery mode.
