Street artist Rone challenged landlords to share their space with artists, ACMI's Chief Experience Office Seb Chan challenged museums to be democratic spaces and Arts Access Victoria's CEO Caroline Bowditch challenged all of us to ensure art was inclusive for everyone.

The conversation continued with #CreativeState trending all day while interactive exhibit by Marc O'Matic kept everyone busy between trips to the catering table.

Day one done and dusted, day two features micro-amusement parks, noise drawers and playable cities. Join us from 9am at Melbourne Museum or stream it live over at Facebook.
