|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject will explore how young people create their social and personal identities through the arts (including visual and performing arts), and use these processes to relate to peers and society. This subject is taught in intensive mode with a combination of tutorials and cultural site visits. Students will investigate trends in young people's use of the arts to develop and express individualities, and then create an 'artefact' using the arts to illustrate understandings of these trends. Student understanding of youth arts will be contextualised through investigations into the companies, organisations and individuals who provide or facilitate visual and performing arts works and experiences for young people.
