ARTICLE - Fear of Advice

Our Doyenne Monica started Creative Plus Business to help freelancers and creatives develop their business skills by providing high quality advice and education. Diving into the advisory process can be a truly terrifying step to take, even when the advice is honest and trustworthy - but why is this? Why are we so afraid? More importantly, how can we overcome our fear and embark upon an enriching and supportive journey with a coach, mentor or advisor? Head to our Content page and read more here!

DATA - Value of Arts and Culture

The Bureau of Communications and Arts Research (BCAR) has released new analysis showing cultural and creative activity contributed a whopping $111.7 billion to Australia’s economy in 2016-17. The paper found a 30% increase in the value of cultural and creative activity, from $86 billion in 2008-09 to $111.7 billion in 2016-17. This equates to 6.4% of Australia’s Gross Domestic Product in 2016-17! This is a huge development and highlights the value and capacity of arts and cultural activity as a driver of economic development in Australia. What an exciting time for the creative industries!
