|Content||Indonesia offers a wealth of observable difference as well as complex social and economic strata that affect visitors' perception and responses to this unique third-world country. The objective of this unit is to introduce and immerse students into one aspect of this rich living Indigenous culture. The unit offers students the opportunity to experience learning within the niche of lived experience, social responsibility, agency and where possible, contribution to community.|
This is a unique cultural program which introduces language, history, contemporary and traditional visual art practices and techniques in a studio setting and in the field. Students are mentored to creatively engage with, record and process culture using drawing, painting, digital photography and graphic processes. These academic, observational and recording strategies equip students with a skill set with which they can creatively engage with cultures and workplaces around the globe.

|Assessment||Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) written and oral reports critiqued in tutorial; and (2) final folio. Further information is available in the unit outline.|
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.
