Participation and Community Engagement in Arts - FOAR300

This unit provides an opportunity for students to engage with the community through a variety of activities. Examples include individual and group activities with public-sector agencies, professional bodies, companies, industry partners and not-for-profit organisations. The unit promotes learning through participation with community partners as well as the development of graduate capabilities and professional skills. Students will be encouraged to apply theory from their degree to real-world situations. Student learning will be facilitated through orientation and induction activities, scaffolding for skill and knowledge development and debriefing; supported throughout by rigorous academic assessment. The unit will have particular emphasis on social inclusion and focus on Indigenous issues, cross-cultural development, social justice, poverty reduction, human rights and gender equity.

The unit is open for enrolment to students from all disciplines; however enrolment is contingent on an appropriate PACE activity being determined in advance, in consultation with Faculty PACE staff. Due to the nature of this unit it is important to contact the Arts PACE team four weeks prior to the commencement of Session 1 or Session 2. Students wishing to enrol in this unit should lodge an online enquiry via prior to submission of a waiver application to request further information.
