As we re-emerge from the pandemic, what will it be like to develop work, find communities and forge a sustainable career in the cultural and creative industries? Where are the support mechanisms and what incentives are there to start a career in the arts?

After the symposium, join us in the  new Members Lounge for convivial networking.
