SAE HOSTS MUSIC AND ARTS ECONOMY HEARING

2 Aug 2018

SAE Creative Media Institute was pleased to host the parliamentary committee, chaired by the Hon Paul Green MLC, for the inquiry into the music and arts economy in NSW at its Byron Bay campus on Tuesday 31st July.

To date, the inquiry has received 422 submissions from stakeholders and has hosted meetings at four venues across NSW, including Byron Bay.

The visit was an opportunity for the General Manager of SAE Australasia, Lee Aitken, to provide testimony in support of the Institute’s submission to the inquiry. Mr Aitken acknowledged the growth in the creative industries sector and opportunities for long term employment. The SAE submission outlines the need for strong relationships between government, community, industry and education providers to capitalise on these growth opportunities.

The submission states: “SAE Institute believes the music and arts industry, as key elements of the creative sector, are on a growth trajectory. Only in partnership can we leverage opportunities for growth, and help to grow the global profile of the NSW arts and industry sectors.”

While on site, the committee members had the opportunity to tour the SAE Byron Bay campus and to meet with staff and students.
