  • Overview

    This unit involves a critical and analytical examination of artistic creativity within an industrial context. Through studying this unit, students will gain insights into how to nurture and facilitate artistic creativity. The ground has shifted under arts organisations due to new technologies. What are the opportunities for innovation, growth and renewal? Will theatre and live music survive as economically viable industries because they are not as subject to piracy? The new arts industries that are emerging are intricately tied to a new media ecosystem. This unit will explore the interrelationship between these and will present ideas concerning the future of the Australian arts and entertainment industries.
