Western Australia's first Creative Tech Innovation Hub has been launched in Bunbury. The WA Creative Technology Innovation Hub (WACTIH) is a State-wide network which is aimed at bringing together and supporting tech creatives both online and in person. The hub aims to build industry partnerships with regional innovation hubs, the startup community and the education sector. A first for the State, the Hub will be focused on supporting creative industries such as design, music, advertising, film, and media, as well as emerging technologies including gaming, digital software development and immersive technology.
The state Government will invest $1.2 million over four years in WACTIH, which enables collaboration with Edith Cowan University, the City of Bunbury, industry and local communities.
WACTIH's first international initiative, the Creative Tech Exchange, will focus on developing new international partnerships with creative, tech and innovation collaborators from around the world.
