dc.description.abstractAbstract Higher Education (HE) students and employers within the creative industries dismiss prevailing ‘employability’ skills as inadequate. The author discovers the ‘bottom up’ reality that entry into the creative world and onward survival requires access to contact networks, confidence and adaptability to cope with uncertainty, changing contexts for business, partnerships and innovative opportunities. ‘Complexability’, it is suggested, better describes such interactive competences. In close work with undergraduates, graduates and practitioners in two contrasting disciplines: Architecture and Dance, a set of interlocking briefs for such cyclical working emerges. A dance student’s passion for Parkour inspires the Creatour construct. To summarise Creatour’s 8 step construct visually, Escher’s faux staircase and tessalated interlocking patterns are ‘borrowed’. Unexpectedly Creatour has been cited as applicable to law, business and medicine.en
