The creative fulcrum : Where, how and why the creative workforce is growing
Hearn, Gregory N. (2015) The creative fulcrum : Where, how and why the creative workforce is growing. In Andersen, Lisa, Ashton, Paul, & Colley, Lisa (Eds.) Creative Business in Australia: Learnings from the Creative Industries Innovation Centre, 2009 to 2015. UTS ePress, Sydney, N.S.W, pp. 93-106.
Contrary to the view that the creative workforce is shrinking, a decade of detailed research by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI) shows that the number of workers in creative occupations is growing strongly, and that these workers are spread right across the whole economy. Furthermore, these occupations can be thought of as a ‘creative fulcrum’ for innovations that leverage competitiveness in all sectors, and create positive job spirals that stimulate opportunities for many other occupation categories.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
