Livelihoods provides students with opportunities to consider and make action plans for the transition from university to working life. In this module, you will research and explore the current cultural landscape including volunteering and freelance work, the opportunities it offers you and the opportunities you can create yourselves as new entrants into the world of work. There will be a range of activities including: visiting speakers, networking events, independent research, group workshop tasks and the development of individual livelihood 'Flight Plan'. Livelihoods encourages you to draw upon the thinking you have done on your degree about the values, ideologies and practices of the cultural industries and to use that thinking to make empowered choices about work and livelihood. In addition to attending the introductory meeting, you will sign up for a minimum of five sessions from a menu of 2-hour workshops held weekly in Semester 1. The module is assessed on a pass/fail basis, based on the completion of an individual livelihood Flight Plan. You will receive feedback on your Flight Plan from adviser in Semester 2
