Developmental Project I

School of Consciousness and Transformation TPM 7324 6.00

"Developmental Project, across both classes, identifies, in academic contexts, what the student artist does and, through practice-led exploration in the studio and rigorous academic writing, identifies how they do it. While the Production module offers a significant and immediate indication of the ideas of the student, Developmental Project allows space for longer-term thinking and, as such, reflects the business plan expected as part of the Professional Portfolio module. It could be argued that the long term creative mission of the student is as important to his/her survival as the business plan - if not more so: without a sense of creative/cultural consistency the artist is likely to become a reactive - rather than responsive - freelance professional. In Developmental Project 1 students move towards writing a short mission statement; during an intensive workshop period at the beginning of Semester 3 (Summer), students develop a practice-as-research performance. This performance represents processes of creativity in relation to the aims and objectives articulated in the mission statement. " TPM student
