Evidence abounds about a 'brain drain' in Australia in the sciences and technology sectors, which ambitious 'innovation agendas' have failed to address. What role can the arts play in spurring new approaches to innovation in wider society? How can artists play a role in designing new practices for design, industry, medicine or social services? Can the arts play a central role in the transformation to knowledge-based, innovative economies? How can the arts influence how we see innovation beyond technology?
Our expert panel explore the future of Arts and Innovation in this informative and topical seminar.
