Topic description
Collaborating with industry stakeholders and engaging with community groups and organisations is a vital skill for working in the creative industries. This topic develops these skills through the exploration of various strategies, policies and approaches to collaborating with external stakeholders in creative projects. Starting with the initiation of the project through to the projects evaluation, the topic culminates in a presentation of students’ community-engaged arts projects.
Educational aims

This topic aims to:

  • Increase students' knowledge and appreciation of a range of industry stakeholders and community organisations who collaborate with artists on creative outcomes
  • Enhance students' ability to initiate and respond to collaborative opportunities with external stakeholders in reflexive and inclusive ways (including processes of communication, negotiation, scheduling, implementation of mutually agreed objectives and evaluation of outcomes)
  • Provide opportunities for students to develop practical skills in designing, planning and producing a collaborative community engaged arts project
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic students will be expected to be able to:

  1. Analyse current collaborations and community engaged projects occurring in the creative industries
  2. Design a community engaged arts project (including suggested processes for communicating with the stakeholders, proposed schedules and timelines for completion, acknowledgement of potential barriers to the project, and a description of the expected project outcome)
  3. Plan and implement a process of documentation for a community engaged arts project
  4. Create and/or produce a community engaged arts project outcome
  5. Evaluate their community engaged arts project

Key dates and timetable

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
