Creative Education: Diverse careers of the future.

60% of jobs in the near future don't yet exist. This panel will take you on a short journey into the future, creating scenarios of what creative industry jobs might look like not too far from now…Where will universities fit into this? How can we make a livelihood from our ideas? How will creatives make an income in the future?

All Talks and Panels are free on a first come first served basis for a percentage of places. However there will be a limited number of places available to reserved in advance for any panel for $5. Once booked we are unable to provide refunds. CreateX will donate all funds received through reserved seating to The QUT Learning Potential Fund and the Creative Industries at QUT.
