The creative industries are one of the fastest-growing and most dynamic sectors; and yet it is only in the last couple of decades that the arts has been seen as an industry at all. In this unit, you will explore how the creative arts industries sit on the international stage, and within the broader Australian context. You will explore the elusive and complex concept of creativity and how it is commodified to create an industry. You will consider how the combination of ideas, talent, hands-on skills, and the entrepreneurial spirit can be effectively applied within the creative industry. You will investigate the history of the creative arts from medieval craftsmen, to renaissance and later artists, to modern-day creative practitioners.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
