Description Creative TEAMS 1 will bring students together in interdisciplinary groups to work with Creative Industries practitioners in a 'real world' context. Students will learn how to collaborate to develop an original solution to a "wicked" problem set by the industry partner. Through research and planning, in relation to a set of relevant constraints: such as cultural, social, environmental, site and audience, students will develop a strategy that utilises the appropriate media, message and approach, to address the identified target audience, based on research findings.
