Brave New World: Chris Keely explores the future of the creative and cultural sector in Australia.

This is a past event.


Join SAMAG and Executive Director of Create NSW, Chris Keely as he reflects on this ‘brave new world’ of social distancing and stay at home culture, and what it means for the future of the creative and cultural sector in NSW and Australia. 

This webinar will be an ‘in conversation style’ discussion moderated by Anne Maria Nicholson – Anne Maria is the former National ABCTV arts reporter and an expert interviewer. She sits on the board of the Australian Society of Authors and is its representative on the Copyright Council.

By mid-April it will be one month since the arts and cultural sector was effectively shut down by measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Australian communities and overseas. This is an unprecedented event in our lifetime, leaving many arts workers and professionals vulnerable. It has also brought forward a flourishing of creativity, collaboration and innovation in the digital sphere, in advocacy and in the very process of creative practice. 

Downloadable copies of the webinar are available until 30 June 2020.  These are in 4 formats, including a “Gallery View” option with Auslan signing.

Downloads are free for SAMAG members, and $10 for  non members.
