Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to collaborate with other creative practitioners in order to establish, realise and then evaluate a creative project.
It applies to individuals who are independent creative practitioners working together in a collaborative team on commercial or community creative projects in physical or virtual environments.

The unit applies to self-generated projects as well as those developed in response to opportunities presented by others.
No licensing, legislative or certification conditions apply to this unit at the time of publication.
