Course Description

In this course you will develop strategies to communicate your work in publication and performance formats, predominantly towards an outward-facing publication or event-based project.  

You will apply conceptual, critical or creative thinking to produce a project that communicates your work to a specific audience/context. You will work collaboratively and individually in the assessment tasks of this course. Classes explore skills and concepts in image, film, performance, graphic design, curation, publishing and writing in the context of the contemporary fashion industry and related creative fields. This course allows you to deepen your understanding of creative approaches, markets (from niche to mainstream) and contexts for fashion communication and position your work within this. 

The main learning activities for this course are delivered within formats of tutorial, lectorial, workshop, and individual consultations. 

Through an industry-based (WIL) learning environment, this course allows you to deepen your understanding of creative approaches, markets (from niche to mainstream) and contexts for fashion communication and position your work within this.
