Encouraging creativity at RMIT

My first face-to-face engagement since March 2020 was with a group of talented RMIT students in Melbourne who are just starting the first year of the Bachelor of Business Innovation and Enterprise course.

We set them a challenge at the start of the week to create a 30 second video about themselves using Adobe Premiere Rush.

I had the pleasure of judging what the students created and deciding on which of the students would receive some special merchandise prizes from Adobe.

I also had the opportunity to share with them a short presentation about turning their passions into a job. I highlighted the fact that it is important for them to not wait until they’ve finished their university degree to try and set up a small business and brand themselves in a creative way.

All of these students will be getting access to the Adobe Creative Cloud applications as part of this course and I encouraged them to get to know these tools and to enhance the digital literacy and creativity skills.

Congratulations to Violet, Archer, Marlon & Zuhra for your winning efforts.

A special thank you to RMIT lecturers Simon Thornton, Sam Fearn & Daniel Christiansen as well the wider Adobe Education team for helping to put this event together. We are looking forward to more engagement with RMIT throughout 2021.
