The BCAR’s research paper Creative skills for the future economy analyses the skills and qualifications of people working in creative fields and how they may be used in the future.

Creative skills have a substantial influence on Australia’s economy, with businesses relying on $87 billion worth of creative industries inputs in 2014-15.
