Why these projects? Three projects conducted in 2007: 1. Skills Dev’t for VET Practitioners 2. Industry Training Networks 3. Strategic Management All projects targeted greater ACPA integration with industry/government
The viability of the Performing Arts and ACPA will rely on building an audience to consume the product.
The importance (…to ACPA…) of developing quality performance products as a vehicle for ACPA students and graduates… Increasing participation …with the professional arts sector. (Also) recognising the significant and actual potential national and international demand for indigenous dance and music.
A lot of exciting possibilities…You need to partner with industry to place you closer to the audience and consumers.
ACPA as a training organisation needs to focus on its strengths, not over extend itself, and produce multi skilled graduates with realistic aspirations. Explore the potential for creating not just artists but creative entrepreneurs – exploit linkages/partnerships within/outside the arts industry.
Don’t work alone – there are many public and private organisations which share your goals and will support you…. A lot of exciting possibilities…You need to partner with industry to place you closer to the audience and consumers.
