TRANSFORMING REGIONAL ARTS THROUGH ATTITUDE, ACCESS, PEOPLE AND PLACE
The Arts Ablaze program will have a variety of ways of engaging in meaningful discussion, sector networking and experiencing regional arts in action. There will be a limited number of opportunities within each programming category to ensure that delegates can access as much of the program as possible without too many competing parallel activities.
Presentations at Arts Ablaze will be used as catalyst for discussion. In 30-minute timeslots, these presentations must address a conference theme and challenge participants to think about new approaches and models. Case studies that demonstrate great regional arts outcomes are encouraged.
Please note that presentations selected through the EOI process will be a voluntary contribution to the conference program, with early bird discounts offered to the presenter/s.
Masterclasses will be up to 90 minutes in length. These can take several forms:
- Facilitated sessions that delve into one or more of the themes aiming for a proposal to pitch back to delegates;
- Hands on art making workshops that can expose artists and arts workers to new ways of working in their communities; or
- A skills development workshop that aligns with a conference theme.
Masterclasses can be held across a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces dependent on the requirements of the presenter. Masterclass presenters/ facilitators will be remunerated for time and materials.
