Developing future facing graduates through innovative and challenging real world live projects
MetadataShow full item record
This paper will convey the iteration and student-centred impact of the ‘Real World Project’, a final year interdisciplinary live project undertaken by students from the BA Graphic communication programme within Cardiff School of Art and Design. ‘Real World’ provides students with opportunities to creatively respond to a real world brief and to engage directly with clients. In 2015, Real World challenged the students to communicate issues emerging from the Future Generations Act through involvement with the Cynnal Cymru – Sustain Wales organisation. They worked in teams that included design industry mentors and undertook responsibility for project management through time critical milestones and deliverables. We use the example of Real World to provoke a wider discussion about the role of live projects within evolving political, social and pedagogical contexts. Whereas the typical live project is intended to afford students the opportunities to solve problems through an experience that simulates the creative industry, here we offer a viewpoint that considers the agency of the student in shaping the future sustainability of the design profession.
