As the creative landscape evolves, so too must the approach to nurturing and connecting those who make a living – or aspire to – from their talents on stage, in a studio, with a brush, a camera, clay, steel...whatever their craft. 

The Big Idea knows the importance of keeping your finger on the pulse of the creative sector – and is readying to unveil our new Learning Network - a visionary platform poised to redefine the boundaries of collaboration and education.

We’ve taken the stance that all successful people have – you're never too good, too experienced, too talented, too old to improve your career.

Whether it’s a desire to go global, to make more money or to build a stronger bond with other artists, The Learning Network will have you covered.

The genesis of a creative revolution

The concept of the Learning Network was borne from a simple, yet determined desire to create an expansive community for artists and creatives from all sectors – the type of community that proactively encourages growth and innovation, as well as dispatching the gatekeepers of information. 

This virtual hub is designed to be a place where geographic barriers vanish and creative spirits soar.
