  16. unique PRACTICE… SM4146 Portfolio & Practicum All CIL students have to complete a digital portfolio before graduation. The digital portfolio is a presentation of selected works from the 3-4 years of work with narratives to explain one’s artistic purposes and beliefs, development, strengths and variety of skills. The portfolio must also document a student’s outreach/professional experience as a student. (That could be internship in a media organization, volunteer work in art events, cultural activist participation, experience of hosting creative workshops for secondary schools, participation in a festival or exhibition etc.) See: http://criticalintermedia.scm.cityu.edu.hk/ Action Projects (AP) Starting 2009-2010, CIL students can participate in one or more of the following AP’s created for all BACM students. These “action group” activities are highly related to the CIL curriculum. They were first initiated and experimented within the CIL in the past few years, now open to all BACM students. *Exhibition *Media Art Criticism *Study Tours for media & contemporary art
