Event Details

An Australia Council for the Arts Event.

What does it mean to be creative within a world where the future is increasingly shaped by technology? What is the place of the human?

In an increasingly complex landscape, we are all navigating boundaries between the human, the future, technology and creativity. The intersections create both opportunities and challenges when we consider what they mean for artists, creatives and across society.

In an immersive discussion, an interdisciplinary panel of artists, creatives and thinkers explore the concept of The Space in Between. They consider a range of areas including:

  • the value of arts and creativity across time, industries and societies
  • ethical navigation of change
  • the role of technology in shaping diverse identities, and 
  • (re)shaping the relationship between arts creation and engagement
