​CURVY is a one-day only event, Saturday June 9th

Doors Open: 10am

Session One:
Boundary Breakers - 10:30am - 12:30pm

Session One presents a handpicked panel of women that are breaking boundaries within their creative industries. We ask how they have achieved what so many seek, and what they have done in an environment where creatives, companies and brands are more progressive than ever before. Be inspired by their vision, first hand ideas and insights.

CURVY Connect - One: 12:30 - 1:00

CURVY Connect is an opportunity for attendees to connect with speakers and guests to spark conversations and collaborations. With thanks to Blind Corner Wines and two Birds Brewing

Session Two:
Future Finance - 1:00 - 2:30

​Session Two is all about the money. We present a lineup of leading women that will provide invaluable advice on how to maximise the commercial aspects of your creative career. Learn real ways you can increase your earnings potential, and also explore new ideas for creative women to better manage what you earn and take advantage of emerging opportunities to amplify it. 

Women are leading the charge in the new creative economy.  The 'Future Finance' session invites you to be part of the discussion. Come armed with your own questions and take advantage of this unique opportunity.

Session Three:
Peggy Oki Keynote - 3:00 - 3:30

Peggy Oki is a living icon and pioneer of the skateboarding industry. She broke barriers in the world of 70's skateboarding as the only female member of the Zephyr Skateboard team, made famous in the Sean Penn narrated film, Dogtown & Z-Boys. The Z-Boys crew basically created the entire skateboarding industry as we now know it.

Since her Z-Boys days, Peggy has gone on to study environmental biology and establish a succesful art career. She is also a tireless advocate for cetacean rights through her Origami Whales Project, and has a deep commitment to our planet that drives her to inspire people around the world to make a difference. She inspires not only with her art, she inspires with her actions.

Peggy has an incredibly inspiring story to tell and we are thrilled to have her as our special keynote guest at CURVY 2018.

Session Four:
BREATHE - 3:30 - 5:00

​Today it is more important than ever to bring a balance to your creative life and work — we ask our leading panel how. BREATHE shines a light on ethical, eco, sustainable holistic lifestyle hacks that will help take you and your creative business to the next level, with mindfulness and grace. For this panel, Peggy Oki is joined on stage by an amazing group of creative women that are finding this balance in their own unique ways. They will also unveil an exciting CURVY project that they are collaborating on later in 2018.

Closing Drinks: 5:00 - 6:00 pm
With thanks to Blind Corner Wines and Two Birds Brewing.
