About this Unit
Careers in the Creative Industries are on the rise. They’re innovation-led, mobile, global and adaptable. In the short-term success can be a matter of luck but a long-term career requires tactics, talent, and savvy business acumen. In this hands-on unit we’ll introduce you to some of the key opportunities in the Creative Industries in fields as diverse as Communication, Media, Music, Design, Writing and associated aspects of Intellectual Property Law and Entrepreneurship. We’ll look at the Creative Industries from historical and contemporary perspectives, and hear from industry contributors working in the field right now. You’ll be introduced to ‘future of work’ skillsets, including entrepreneurship, leadership, collaboration and communication capabilities, and you’ll learn how to situate your own creative knowledge within them. Available to students from all disciplines, this unit will suit you if you’re passionate about taking your creative career to the next level.
