The Creative Industries (CI) Fair 2009 is an inaugural event organised by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) and supported by the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA), National Arts Council (NAC), Media Development Authority (MDA), Infocomm Development Authority (IDA), DesignSingapore Council (DSG), and SPRING Singapore.
This is the first time that the Government is organizing an event to showcase the various job, career conversion and skills upgrading opportunities in the Creative Industries which cover the Arts & Culture, Media & Communications, and the Design subsectors.
The CI Fair 2009 will feature at least 300 jobs, 100 apprenticeship places, and 1000 training opportunities. Visitors can also find out more about the jobs available from companies, programmes to help individuals convert into the Creative Industries; as well as training courses to assist existing creative individuals to upskill and prepare for the upturn.
Exciting daily programmes are scheduled at the CI Fair 2009 where all visitors can get to interact with and hear from employers, creative professionals, agencies, trainers and individual workers sharing more on the Creative Industries. Besides these talks and forums, there will also be demonstrations and workshops at the fair.
