How can artists and the creative sectors step up and make an impact on the most challenging issues of our time? How can creativity influence public debate and discourse? And how can the arts be the kind of gamechanger it always sets out to be?
If you’re working in arts and culture (or hoping to forge a creative career), then get ready to grapple with these questions (and a whole lot more) at Creative Victoria’s third Creative State Summit. Held over two days at Melbourne Museum, the summit is an opportunity to hear from and meet some of the most innovative minds in the city and beyond, working across arts, culture, screen and design.
Your ticket gets you access to the entirety of the two-day program, the theme of which is 'What's Next'. That question is more important now for creative professionals than ever, as technological and geopolitical changes shape the world at breakneck speed. Speakers at this year's event include Maxine Doyle, associate director of the UK's Punchdrunk and co-creator of Sleep No More; Nancy Bennett, creative director of Two Bit Circus in the US; Tara Mckenty, creative director of Google APAC; and Tamasein Holyman co-founder of Immersive Cinema, Mistress of Make-Believe, Underground Cinema and Secret Squirrel Productions. And that’s just scratching the surface; visit the website for full details.
This Creative State Summit is produced by REMIX Summits and is part of Creative Victoria’s Creative State program – a $115 million strategy launched in April 2016 – which aims to boost the state’s creative industry across everything from film and television to fashion and arts festivals.
