Community, Culture & Commerce: The Creative Arts and Corporate Social Responsibility- Jock McQueenie
Jock McQueenie has a background in visual arts, and has taken his creative background into cross-sector projects, fulfilling social, cultural and artistic outcomes in remote and artistically intriguing locations. He is currently working with the Queensland Writers Centre on a project in three regional centres, Rockhampton, Bundaberg and Mount Isa, working with environmental education centres, the mining industry and tourism agencies.
His work is about utilising professional creativity to reach corporate funding outcomes, without sacrificing the integrity of the creative art. Here he talks about his 'Community, Culture, Commerce' model relating arts practice and corporate social responsibility and how this applies in today's creative industries.
