Liveworm is an experience available to Queensland College of Art, Griffith University students in their final years of study. Read below for more information on how to apply for a position.

Professional Practice Elective

Students can elect to participate in Liveworm up to three times under the elective courses 3593QCA Professional Practice 13594QCA Professional Practice 2, and 3595QCA Professional Practice 3. These courses are offered in Trimester 1, Trimester 2, and Trimester 3. Each course requires the completion of 100 hours of studio practice and a reflective journal. In Liveworm, the course operates in an intensive mode of 17 hours per week for six consecutive weeks. The Professional Practice courses are not traditionally timetabled — students are responsible for setting their own timetable while in the studio. Note that the studio also operates year-round, meaning that the groups run over trimester breaks. Please check your group selections against the Griffith University academic calendar to avoid surprises.

Liveworm is offered to all Queensland College of Art, Griffith University students in their second and above years of study. It is a pre-requisite to have completed either 2681QCA or 2682QCA before undertaking Liveworm to ensure you have enough visual design and typographic experience to be a productive artworker in the studio.
