The Art of the Possible: Forging an Arts Career

Making a career in the arts depends on expanding the boundaries of the possible.

The capstone course for the Bachelor of Creative Arts will equip students with some of the skills they will need to launch a career in their chosen field. The course will introduce them to the Australian and international arts funding landscape, and teach them how to identify potential opportunities and how to leverage them. They will learn about essential skills such as pitching ideas to promoters and producers, producing book proposals and securing agents.

The course will also teach entrepreneurship and how to leverage their creative skills in a fast-paced changing world. Students will learn to work in broad cross-functional teams and learn leadership skills. They will be introduced to local South Australian creative industries leaders as well as international leaders in the arts and business. Students will complete a detailed research project in which they will devise a strategy to bring their creative work to the world.
