Crafting Self: Promoting the making self in the creative micro-economy

Crafting Self,
19 February 2019, Australia

Aims and Methods 
Promoting the Making Self in the Creative Micro-economy (‘Crafting Self’) was funded through the Australian Government’s Australian Research Council’s Discovery Project funding scheme (project number DP150100485).

The primary aim of the project was to determine how online distribution is changing the environment for operating a creative micro-enterprise, and with it, the larger relationship between public and private spheres. A key research question was: what are the ‘self-making’ skills required to succeed in this competitive environment?
