Industry & Enterprise
Together, the Arts and education sectors form a powerful catalyst for the new ways of seeing, knowing, doing and being that underpin life in the 21st century.
We want to nurture the next generation of creative entrepreneurs and cultural citizens to push the boundaries of excellence in the Arts and build social cohesion in our global and multicultural society.
Arts-rich learning environments deliver higher results in Arts education and across the curriculum. These environments motivate students to learn and increase their participation in their school community. Arts-rich learning environments deliver opportunities for artists to be seen and heard and to reap economic benefit from being creative and working with young people.
To obtain the benefits of powerful learning that can be achieved through the arts, the Queensland Academies Creative Industries is continually developing a broad range of significant arts community and business relationships.
Our success relies on understanding how ideas and new knowledge and skills are developed. Collaboration with innovative industry partners and the creative community will guarantee that teaching and learning practices at Queensland Academy for Creative Industries remains world class. Critical to this outcome is the productive industry and enterprise involvement that will benefit our students and staff in the following ways:
- QACI is strategically aligned with business, research, education, creative and cultural leaders. Interactions with foremost industries and enterprises expose Academy staff and students to leading thinkers and practitioners, cutting edge technologies and world leading practices
- Students are engaged in forward-looking, outcomes focussed projects across a range of contexts, which will contribute to their future learning and employment aspirations.
- Dialogue with industry and enterprise partners provides the critical feedback necessary to ensure the vibrancy, relevance and excellence of our learning programs.
