Event Details


Working across genres, artforms and platforms the role of the artist in society is changing: 

Cultural leader? Ratbag? Trend setter? Activist? Intellectual elite? Provocateur? Change maker? Shapeshifter?

Featuring a line-up of tenacious artists celebrated for producing work that is both hyper-local and internationally resonant, this conversation will explore the contemporary role of the artist and their commitment to bold, authentic story telling. What stories need to be told? Who needs to tell them? And how are they told?

Join an inspiring conversation with artists using storytelling to affect change featuring: Nakkiah Lui, Ali Kadhim, Alison Page, Vic McEwan and Zan Rowe as MC.
