Beyond the obvious cultural and social benefits that creativity can deliver, it seems creative small businesses are also delivering a significant economic impact. On a global scale the sector is rapidly emerging as a financial force to be reckoned with, one that requires relatively little investment for a huge potential return. But what does this boom mean for individual creatives working for themselves? Are they future-proofed and ready for the boom?
In two informal presentations, Monica breaks down the numbers, busts some jargon, and discusses the future of creative industries. Ideal for students, creative organisations, government and any other creative stakeholders.
KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Get Ready for the BOOM!
A 30-45 minute keynote that presents the facts and figures behind the global creative industries boom, and discusses how creative practitioners, educators and other interested stakeholders can make the most of this optimistic future trend.
WORKSHOP: Future Proofing for Creative Industries
