A presentation for stakeholders about the value and impact of the local creative economy
There’s no doubt that creativity has cultural and social benefits, but there’s now ample evidence to show that creative and cultural practice can also deliver a significant economic impact in both metropolitan and regional areas. On a global scale the creative economy is rapidly emerging as a financial force to be reckoned with, and one that requires relatively little investment for a huge potential return.
But how do creatives, and the stakeholders that they engage with, position themselves to make the most of this new global value? Is everyone future-proofed and ready for the creative economic boom?
In two informal presentations, our Director Monica Davidson presents the research, breaks down the numbers, busts some jargon and discusses practical ways that everyone can make the most of the value of creative industries.
KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: The Value of Creative industry
A 20-45 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
A 3 hour workshop that introduces participants to the global trends in creative industries, and examines practical steps that stakeholders can take to support creative practitioners who want to turn their skill into a business. Participants will have a better understanding of:
- The economic and cultural value of creative industry in Australia and globally;
- Real-world examples of how creative industry can be supported;
- Resources and organisations available to help creatives build business;
- Simple practical steps that can help creatives prepare for the industrial boom.
