Are you alive with ideas and endlessly curious or inventive? Explore the creative world of work, hear amazing imagineers and performers share their stories and key advice at the Creative Industries Career Expo, 11 – 13 March at Museum Africa, Newtown.

We invite learners to leaders passionate about producing ideas to be turned into intellectual property.

What is Intellectual Property?

It’s really true! Some of the crazy, persistent thoughts tickling your imagination may well be a lucrative pot of gold!

Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations such as

  • Inventions
  • Music
  • Literary and artistic works
  • Designs and symbols
  • Names and images used commercially

Intellectual Property allows creative people to protect their works and control how they are used. Copyright, design rights, patents and registered trademarks are all recognized ways for creatives to secure their rights and earn money.

Ignite, Creative Spark!

The Creative Industries Career Expo is designed for high school learners, recent school leavers, and young people outside the formal education system.

The beauty of the creative industries are the multiple entrances and flexibility. In the creative sector, career options are limited only by your imagination!

To help you navigate this wide open terrain, we’re hosting inspirational presentations and workshops with artists, educators and industry professionals, alongside exhibition stalls from tertiary institutions, arts organisations and services for young people.

Entry to amazing daily Career Guidance Workshops facilitated by educators, industry experts and artists is completely free, thanks to our sponsors!

Anyone searching for post-school education options and a deeper understanding of the diverse occupational paths requiring creativity will enjoy our Creative Industries Exhibition dedicated to career discovery.
