The Creative State Summit returns to Melbourne Museum May 30-31, bringing together Victoria’s arts, cultural, design, digital games, fashion and screen sectors.
Focused on the ‘What’s Next?’ theme, the summit – an annual initiative of the Victorian Government’s Creative State strategy – examines bold new ideas, emerging trends and the opportunities and disruptions set to shape the industry in the future.
Creative game-changers including Maxine Doyle, Associate Director of the UK’s sensory theatre company Punchdrunk, Japanese digital art collective teamLab, and Nancy Bennett, Creative Director of LA-based Two Bit Circu, creators of immersive mixed reality playgrounds are among the first international speakers announced.
Other speakers include Hussain Currimbhoy, Documentary Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and Hilary O’Shaughnessy, Lead Producer of Playable City, which unlocks social dialogue through interactive, creative smart city technologies.
If you are a local creative practitioner or industry expert, or you know someone who is, submissions are now open to present at the Summit.
Tickets are now available, and a range of bursaries and subsidised tickets are on offer for independent Victorian creatives and small organisations, and for regional participants. Visit www.creativestatesummit.com for details.
