Content

This unit considers the economic, social and cultural contribution made by creative industries and examines mechanisms for building the business capacity of the sector.

The creative industries are evolving as a major influence in the global economy. Creativity is seen to be at the forefront of global change and development. Creative industries have been the focus of local, state and national programs that address innovation, entrepreneurship and emerging industries. ABS data indicates that 6.2% of the Australian workforce is currently employed in creative industries and that these are growth industries.

The sector is also diverse, including not only small to medium sized organisations but also a large number of independent enterprises. The skills needed to manage creative industries, and initiatives that support the sector, are context specific. However underpinning all this work are foundational skills in the management of collaborative and entrepreneurial activity.

This unit develops students’ skills and capacities to manage within creative industries, and develop initiatives that support the sector. It considers issues relating to the sustainability and growth of creative industries; developing local and global markets and audiences; infrastructure requirements; new and emerging skill sets and employment patterns; managing collaborative and entrepreneurial activity; regional and sector development initiatives that support the sector.
