Advancing a Creative Industries Precinct in Sydney
University of Technology Sydney joined Minister John Graham, the Australian Fashion Council (AFC), Powerhouse and TAFE NSW today to launch a new report: Advancing a Creative Industries Precinct for Sydney.
As part of the launch a panel including Leila Naja Hibri, Tim Greer, Lisa Havilah, Elizabeth Mossop and our own Pete Smit, discussed, among other things, the power and potential of initiatives that bring together the creative industries with the tech sector. Within the Tech Central Sydney precinct are almost 3,000 businesses across fashion, film, media, design and architecture. The report explores how the Tech Central anchor institutions can support these creative and forward-thinking businesses, start-ups and scale-ups, creating an innovation ecosystem driven by technology. UTS has formed a Steering Committee with the AFC, Powerhouse and TAFE NSW, supported by the Greater Cities Commission, to drive the growth needed to develop world-class technology, innovation and sustainable practice across the creative industries.
