Smart & Creative Industries

The South West region is home to a small but growing group of creative professionals whose work is making a big impression on the global market.

Visual artists, musicians and filmmakers are just some of the creative people finding success on the world stage from their base in the South West.

New and improved infrastructure is making it easier for smart and creative professionals to work from the region.

The establishment of a world-class data centre at the Bunbury library, for instance, recently led to an international digital animation studio moving its operations to the city.

The South West Development Commission supports the smart and creative fields through its TradeStart office and works to develop export opportunities for the region's vibrant creative community.

Find out more about how we're working to support the growth of the smart and creative sector in the region.

Filming Drift

Drift, which stars Myles Pollard, Xavier Samuel and Sam Worthington, was filmed on location in the South West in 2011 and is set for theatrical release in May.

Find out more about the filming of Drift and how we're working to support the growth of the smart and creative sector.
