The subject will examine the social, cultural, artistic, philosophical and ethical content and context of the interface of performance with Community and Cultural Development (CCD) practice in Australia and internationally. Study will be conducted through lectures, readings, group discussions, workshops and visiting talks from leading practitioners. The readings will be drawn from current Australian and international CCD best practice. The emphasis of the subject is the awareness of the principles of community development: empowerment, social change, human rights, cultural values and diversity, local knowledge, inclusiveness, community building, sustainability and global/local interfaces. In addition, students will conduct individual research on a current CCD performance program and present a talk on what underpins that program.
