Artist Ben Quilty will be the Keynote Speaker at Arts 2025, with Jeremy Fernandez set to MC a ground-breaking summit to discuss the future growth of the arts and cultural sector in NSW, to be held in Sydney on Friday March 23 2018.
Up to 500 delegates from all sectors across the State will attend the Arts 2025 Summit at the Carriageworks, invited by the NSW Government.
Prominent contributors to the arts, screen and culture sector who will be leading panel discussions at the Summit include President of the Art Gallery of NSW Trust David Gonski, MCA Board Chair Simon Mordant, ARIA CEO Dan Rosen, film and television producer Rosemary Blight (Cleverman, The Sapphires), opera and festival director Lindy Hume, Managing Director and co-founder of Animal Logic Zareh Nalbandian, Sydney Living Museum’s Michael Rose, Sydney Festival director Wesley Enoch, CEO and Artistic Director of Western Sydney’s Urban Theatre Rosie Dennis, and Managing Director of 107 Projects Jess Cook.
The Summit will help inform the Government’s blueprint for the State’s future investment in arts, screen and culture through to 2025.
Alex O’Mara, Deputy Secretary, Arts, Screen & Culture said, “These will be open, inspiring, inclusive and engaging discussions to prompt innovative ideas for the future vision of arts, screen and culture in NSW, in the context of rapid and unprecedented change in technology and the way in which people consume and engage with the arts.
“It’s an extraordinary opportunity for the sector to come together to begin a conversation about ideas and opportunities to extend the reach of arts, screen and culture in NSW so that it enriches local communities and promotes NSW as a global destination.”
The morning of panels will be followed by an afternoon of roundtable discussions with delegates.
The Summit will explore approaches to the promotion of NSW as a global creative destination; best practice funding models; sustainability and diversifying incomes streams; cross-government collaboration and social impact; and engagement with Western Sydney and regional NSW.
