Abstract

This chapter explores how an extra-curricular approach to enabling interdisciplinary collaboration at The University of Huddersfield has helped music technology undergraduates to become enterprising. It explains the format of a collaboration hub (referred to as CollabHub), and following a brief overview of the key concepts that informed this initiative it provides examples that begin to illustrate how we can recognise risk taking, creativity and enterprise in this assessment-free setting. The CollabHub presents a continually evolving context for collaborative play, which is starting to build a community of apprenticeship. It is framed by research that has what David Hargreaves described as a social agenda for examining collaborative creativity in music. Looking ahead, this work considers how we may begin recognising and rewarding enterprise in this kind of extra-curricular context. Considering these themes and the broader implications for creative practice within and beyond a HMEI, it raises implications questions that may guide new research on extra-curricular collaborative play and enterprise development in HMEIs.
