Creative SCOPE is JMC Academy’s dedicated high - school outreach program for teachers, parents, Career Advisors, Career Practitioners and students to help them navigate through the huge amount of information on creative careers and industries.
Creative work in both traditional and non-traditional sectors has expanded and grown exponentially. However, it's also one of the hardest to keep up with. That's where the Creative Scope team come in.
As a team we want to walk you through what creative careers and industries entail and explain the opportunities available to young adults, giving you the confidence to support your student or child in this important decision. We're super excited about this unique program and look forward to meeting as many passionate creatives and their biggest influencers and mentors!

Patricia has been working for the past 20 years in animation/visual effects and entertainment industry. She started as a trainee Cinema Manager for Village Roadshow on George Street (which is sadly no longer there) and was Location Manager of her own complex in Parramatta, then moved to the set up team of Fox Studios Backlot (which wasn’t the success everyone was hoping for); so she went overseas to Canada and the UK for a couple of years to think about what she wanted to do when she grew up. Upon returning to Sydney she started working at Animal Logic an animation and visual effects studio (Happy Feet, The LEGO Movie, Captain Marvel, Peter Rabbit) in the Recruiting department and after 15 years decided to look at how else she could help others find their place in this changing landscape of roles and careers.
