Thinking outside the box: What the creative industries can learn from innovators in other fields

Speakers: Peter Tullin (REMIX) and Lara Thoms (ArtsPay)

The 2023 series begins by looking outside of the creative sector. What bold ideas and trends could creatives adapt to use in their own organisations? How will technological advances and new business models change the way we work and shape opportunities up ahead?

Putting accessibility first for your event

Arts Access Victoria’s Caroline Bowditch offers ideas on how to not only welcome a new audience but include performers of all levels of ability, in order to make an event that everyone can attend.

Preparing for a National Arts, Culture and Creativity Plan

What should be on the agenda for a National Arts, Culture and Creativity Plan, and how can Victorians contribute to it?

Join Kate Fielding, A New Approach’s CEO, as she explores how we can build a cogent and connected policy for arts and culture across the whole nation and how Victorians can get involved.

Drawing inspiration from the Federal Government’s Sport 2030 plan, A New Approach has argued that we need to put the arts at the centre of our cultural conversation and link up different levels of government with a national approach.

A New Approach (ANA) has contributed to a distinct shift in the conversation and knowledge about arts and culture in Australia. Under Kate’s leadership, a unique alliance of people across the country in governance, advisory and staffing have created a foundation to contribute collaboratively in shaping the future of creative industries.
