Subject Description
This subject gives students the skills to map professional and career pathways in relation to both individual creative practice and through partnerships between practitioners. Students will be introduced to a range of environments in which creative practitioners work, and will articulate their own position in creative and/or commercial industries. Students will create professional documents and resources (CV, artist/research statements, social media profiles) that support their career ambitions. They will also develop a collaborative creative project, which will be produced in an interdisciplinary context. Alongside this, students will have the opportunity to reflect on the cultural, material and ethical impact of their practice.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Identify their individual practice in relation to cultural and commercial industries
2. Produce a creative work in collaboration with others and articulate the benefits and challenges of this process
3. Devise strategies to maintain their careers in the creative industries
4. Understand the cultural and ethical issues surrounding creative practice
