Although the image of work in the Creative and Cultural Industries is attractive to students and course planners alike, international evidence suggests graduates face very poor employment prospects. This project will analyse national graduate employment in Australia┬┐s Creative and Cultural Industries, and compare the utility of both 'creative' and 'cultural' models for tracking employment outcomes. It will bring together two international experts to work with Australian researchers in order to advance a proven UK model for mapping creative graduates. Through the use of sophisticated quantitative analysis of national datasets and interviews, the project will produce the most comprehensive study of creative graduate work ever undertaken.
