6cp; 6hpw (Spring session)
Requisite(s): 87832 VC Design Studio: Design Practice



This subject introduces students to emerging areas of change in visual communication design practice. Students explore the role of
the visual communication designer as collaborative, participatory and research-focused, redefining the designer's role within cultural, environmental and political contexts. By engaging with theories and methodologies that foreground lndigenous thinking and scholarship, de-colonisation, transdisciplinarity and situatedness, students challenge dominant anthropocentric views of the world, developing approaches that value humans and non-humans equally.
