The arts are vitally important to Australia’s future. We have an important story to tell, and we need highly skilled artists, performers, technicians and administrators to take our story across the nation and around the globe. The arts are being restructured by digital change – bold new technologies are being used to create, to perform, to engage and to distribute. This is an exciting place to be, and you’ll be amazed at the career choices available to you.
