Whether you’re an individual artist or managing a venue, a performing arts freelancer or working in a funded arts organisation, this year’s conference is about your concerns and our community. 

It’s time for hard truths, some imaginative thinking but most of all, about creating a platform, where despite and because of our varied interests and experiences, we can come together.

The hard questions we’ve been asking and the challenges we’re facing will be answered with some realistic, achievable and visionary possibilities. Bright minds, stories to inspire, delight, provoke and rally you will come from far flung cities and our own back yards. Be ready to interrogate, ignite and bring these possibilities to life. Whether you’re a maker or a shaker, your voice and answers are needed to shape the way ahead.
