Transcript of Preparing a Project Proposal

Writing a Project Proposal

If you have never written a project proposal before don't worry. Essentially, in this case you will put down your idea(s) in writing.


Project Overview Statement:

What do you intend to research? - an overview
Methodology – how?
What will you be doing that is new? - why do it?
Concepts, themes, subject and issues
The creative practice – what do you intend to produce?
How will you present it?
Material and methods?
Other things to consider: ie locations, ethics, the place of your work (in the field of experimental photography)
The context of your work

Practicing artists / creative practitioners in your field
Theory and conceptual context.

Of your work
Of others work (influences)
The proposal is expected to:

• Show that you are engaging in genuine enquiry, finding out about something worthwhile in a particular context;
• Link your proposed work with the work of others, while proving you are acquainted with major schools of thought relevant to the topic;
• Establish a particular theoretical orientation;
• Establish your methodological approach, and
• Show you have thought about the ethical issues
A research Question
Preparing a Project Proposal
ACA411 /ACA711 - T1

Due: Week 11
Weighting: 50%
ACA411 (2000 words)
ACA711(2500 words)

the question should point directly to the
area your are exploring

Try to distil your project down to one question.
You may have other questions but this is the central one.

Purpose of a proposal
The purpose of the proposal is to help you (as student) to focus and define your research plans. These plans are not binding, in that they may well change substantially as you progress in the research. However, they are an indication to your faculty of your direction and discipline as a researcher. They also help you to prepare your application to the Ethics Committee.

Tips for Success
Structure - of document
Reading and reference list:
Books, journals, web sites, exhibitions etc - List these with title, URL etc
Should try to have at least one of each.
Project Plan /breakdown

Equipment required:
Other: (Any additional information)

In terms of process – think about the parameters of the project. Don't worry, as you work the idea(s), the [practical] outcome(s) may change. If they do just write about it and notice how this is moving your inquiry forward.
So you are proposing the PROCESS =>

What do you think your [outcome/s] will look like?
Consider aspects of PREPARATION
What preparations do you believe will be necessary to achieve your goal (making, gathering specific images, developing environments, making models etc.)
How do you see the work being viewed / displayed/ experienced?
PROOF READ your writing, check spelling and grammar.

LENGTH: Focus on writing that is clear and concise. As you draw together the information you have been generated over the last few months, the word count might grow to over 2500. This is normal, and provides a good basis for a first draft.
You will need to refine this, and perhaps redraft a few times, then revise to sharpen.
