Haseman, Bradley C., Keane, Michael A., & Wissler, Rodney C. (2004) Conclusion. In Wissler, Rodney C., Haseman, Bradley C., Wallace, Sue-Anne, & Keane, Michael A. (Eds.) Innovation in Australian Arts, Media and Design. Post Pressed, Flaxton, Qld, pp. 258-269.


While imagination feeds breakthroughs in every field of human endeavour, creativity is a defining characteristic of working the arts, media, and design professions. The capabilities of creative people are therefore sought in the burgeoning global service industries; a wellspring of the innovation that provides long-term sustainability for communities.

Challenges exist within the tertiary sector therefore, to make the most of these emerging opportunities, calling for a re-purposing of education and research in the arts, media, design, and related fields, and a radical re-definition of the new humanities towards a focus on the application of knowledge and an appreciation of market forces.

This book presents the findings of an extended national debate on policy and practice developments in the fields of arts, media, and design. It brings together contributors from leading thinkers and practitioners that provide glimpses of the readiness of the field and its people, and of the robustness of its underlying epistemologies to succeed in the changing environments of Higher Education, Research and Development, and Cultural Policy.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
