Making it creatively : building sustainable careers in the arts and creative industries
Bridgstock, Ruth S. (2011) Making it creatively : building sustainable careers in the arts and creative industries. Australian Career Practitioner Magazine, 22(2), pp. 11-13.
Many people aspire to careers in the arts and creative industries. However, it has long been known that it can be challenging to navigate a creative career: that competition for work can be intense, particularly for entry-level positions, and that success requires advanced skill sets in addition to a high degree of artistic talent and proficiency. In this article, Dr Ruth Bridgstock draws upon her doctoral and post-doctoral research to explore the challenges involved in building a creative career in Australia and suggest ways to support emerging creatives to build satisfying and sustainable careers.
