CCI Symposium: Internationalisation, Quality, Impact

28-29 June
QUT, Brisbane

The 12th Symposium of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI) brings the Centre together around its international research agenda and collaboration, and showcases its quality and impact as reflected in its significant publications output and graduate outcomes. 

We welcome a number of international guests including: Stuart Allan (Bournemouth University); Anne Galloway (Victoria University of Wellington); Jack Qui (Chinese University of Hong Kong); and representatives of the International Association of Cultural and Creative Industries (IACCI). We will also hear from a number of CCI's highly successful alumni about where their CCI experience has taken them, and authors of recent major publications will discuss the strategic impact of their work.
