Netflix GROW CREATIVE programme
Steven Arriagada and Michele Lee participated in the Netflix GROW CREATIVE programme this year. After being launched successfully last September in the UK, Netflix has expanded the scheme to Australia and New Zealand. GROW CREATIVE is a Netflix initiative to expand and up-skill local talent – both above and below-the-line – via investment in education and training. Delivered via strategic partnerships, the idea behind the program is to create a pipeline of jobs from educational institutions and training programs onto Netflix productions. While aiming to support the streamer’s business needs, GROW CREATIVE also has an eye on building the creative capability and sustainability of the industry, with a particular focus on inclusion and skill gaps.
