Creativity today is part of a global network. Digital cultures and cultural performance are connecting across Asia and the Pacific. This course creates opportunities to think creatively in intercultural contexts. Through digital workshops, field trips and creative encounters with producers, you will develop practical skills in designing creative projects and building a network of contacts for future collaboration across the region. The course begins with a pre-program orientation to cultural performance and creative production at UNSW Sydney. We then travel to Manila for a two-week study program of field trips and workshops hosted by the University of the Philippines. The city of Manila is pivotal in the trans-regional circulation of creative labour and increasingly connected through migration and trade with Australia. This course offers a transformative overseas experience for students wanting to work in the world today with creative arts, media production and digital technologies. Students will be required to self-fund their travel to Manila. Students may be eligible for funding through the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan for this course.
