INLLEN Creative Industries Industry Event

In August, NCAT and the creative arts students and staff were excited and proud to host an Creative Arts Industry event which was the culmination of three years work. The Pathways to Creative Industries Project, with Inner Northern LLEN was funded by the Northern Metropolitan Partnership. The idea of the project was to unpack what would help young people who are entering the creative industry sector for the first time.

Over the past 3 years, NCAT Creative Arts students have been participating in the Pathways to Creative Industries Project, a partnership between the Inner Northern LLEN and NCAT, funded by the Northern Metropolitan Partnership.

Students enrolled in Visual Arts & Design, Photography and Music courses actively participated in both the design and the implementation of their exploration of how transition from school to work operates in the Creative Industries.

Students investigated employment and enterprise opportunities in their field by connecting with creative practitioners to explore how employment functions and the kinds of support that help people move into the industry.  They asked over 50 industry professionals in online interviews about their pathways to work.

At the event NCAT students from Year 12 Art Immersion, Year 12 Music and Certificate IV in Visual Arts students presented their findings from the online interviews. Industry panellists from the Visual and Performing Arts Industries spoke about how they started out in their field, as well as invaluable insights into possible pathways into the creative industries.

Additional industry speakers spoke answered industry specific questions in breakout rooms relevant to the four areas.

Nathan Lambert, Labor state MP representing Preston and Reservoir, opened the event with an inspiring speech on the importance of the arts to the local community.

It was a valuable opportunity for students and teachers alike to meet and talk with working creatives who were so generous with their time, advice and support of younger students wanting to enter the industry.

A big thank you to each of the industry professionals listed below who generously donated their time to the project, as well as the 250 students from local schools who joined us on the day.
