I am currently on leave from Q.U.T., and based at Indiana University, in the Department of Telecommunication.
On Friday May 2 I did a presentation to staff and doctoral student in the Department on creative industries a decade after the concept first emerged in Britain through the Blair Government's Department of Culture, Media and Sport.
I made extensive use of the statistical data developed by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation, by Peter Higgs and Stuart Cunningham.
A copy of the powerpoints of this presentation can be found here.
The presentation was timely, as the Department is considering a renaming in light of its shifting priorities, towards the games and digital content industries. Creative industries is one of the alternative names being considered.
My thanks to Mark Deuze for organising this event for me. Good news for Mark as he had a personal promotion confirmed that day
