The twenty-first century has brought great advantages to a new digital workforce, empowered by affordable technologies and global networks. It also brings greater casualisation for those who must negotiate increasingly borderless workplaces. Nowhere is this more present than in the creative industries where new breeds of digital artists now ply their independent wares on an intertiol stage. For creative and performing arts students to be able to negotiate such a setting, universities need to revise their notions of 'authentic' training, particularly in areas of on-line delivery, work-integrated learning and intellectual property. Pedagogy, curricula and access need a rethink.
