Artlands Victoria is cross-disciplinary, interconnected and intergenerational. We are creating a platform to showcase contemporary artists and new thinkers to influence the way we engage with regional arts and its processes. Our program connects creative projects with critical conversations on key themes – from health and wellbeing in the arts to innovative practice across industries; and from Indigenous practice on country to developments in technology, education and skills development.
Key sessions include:
- Turning the World Upside Down, an exploration of the United Kingdom’s Creative People and Places program, which uses local art experiences as agents for social change in deprived communities;
- Analysing Creative Hot Spots in Regional Australia, a look at how the creative industries drive regional development;
- Developing the City of Greater Bendigo’s Arts and Creative Industries Strategy, a discussion about how the City of Greater Bendigo is embracing a new approach to thinking about creativity in its region;
- The Gannawarra – Creating a Soul where Art Influences a Creative Economy, a look at how artistic thinking can influence the agricultural and tourism industries to create vibrant towns; and
- Evaluating the impact of Art and Culture in our Regions, a practical session focused on outlining a methodology for effectively measuring the community outcomes of arts activities.
Artlands Victoria not only represents an extraordinary professional development opportunity, but a chance to connect with arts and cultural colleagues from across the country.
