Acknowledge Creativity  > About > Introduction

Australian companies are beginning to discover that creative skills can bring fresh thinking into any organisation.

Too many institutions are offering creative courses that ignore skills like pitching, negotiation and market-based price sensitivity, which is key to successfully running your own business.

Since 2014, Acknowledge Creativity has evolved to serve the increase in requests for design-thinking and innovation tools from business students. It was at this time we were also noticing many creatives (artists, designers and writers) looking for commercial skills such as leadership, pitching, and pricing.

More than just finding a niche, we found kindred spirits who had struggled with where and how to learn these ‘other side’ skills. Our first workshops involved both a creative and business-minded audience, and we marvelled at how much they had to teach each other.

Our goal became about building the perfect place to develop creative, entrepreneurial and technical mindsets; a place where participants could learn skills they could take into their workplaces and make positive changes.

We believe …
If you’re not making memories, you’re wasting time.
If you’re not standing up for what you believe in, you’re pretending.
If you’re not asking questions, you are not learning.

Values

Our values are simple but powerful. If you’re not making memories, you’re wasting time. If you’re not standing up for what you believe in, you’re pretending. If you’re not asking how you can help, you don’t care.

Today’s dream can turn into tomorrow’s start-up, with an eye on the stock exchange if that’s your goal. The Diploma of Creative Enterprise trains participants to adapt, invent, innovate and thrive in today’s learning economy. Our students are artistic, resourceful, and inspired to tackle new situations, problems and challenges with skills to specialise in a particular creative discipline or apply their learning to a broader business environment.

Unlock the perfect fusion of imagination, creation and business acumen, and discover the world of creative opportunities that awaits at Acknowledge Creativity.
