The Creative Industries - MECO847

This unit concerns artistic creativity within an industrial context. Students will gain critical insights into the structure and function of the global creative industries sector and develop an understanding of the emerging creative and cultural industries arising within a new media ecosystem. This unit will explore the interrelationship between these and will present insights into the future of the Australian arts and entertainment industries in an increasingly globalised context.

The unit examines individual artist-led enterprise models, the individual within collaborative groups, the management of creative groups within the creative industries, as well as government policy directed toward the development of the creative industries in local and international contexts.
