Stories from the Future Workshops: Re-imagine a Culturally Diverse Arts Future

Are you a culturally diverse creative or arts worker?

Join us for a free workshop to imagine a future where cultural diversity is present at every level in the arts! 

Workshops will be co-hosted in NSW, SA, ACT and WA with our key state partners – The Street, Community Arts Network, and Nexus Arts with support from Country Arts WA & Country Arts SA. Some spaces available to people in other States/Territories. Submit your interest below.

The workshop flows from the personal to the structural and systemic; including exercises that reflect upon experiences of marginalisation in the arts to group exercises of collectively imagining milestones towards an equitable culturally diverse arts scene in 2050. Sydney University’s Dr Remy Low, Lecturer from the Sydney School of Education and Social Work, will be a workshop facilitator.

Workshop outcomes

Workshop outputs will be shared via short films, podcasts, a report, written works and more – in order to reach a national audience to evoke steps towards equitable change by providing a platform for culturally diverse voices in the creative sector to be heard and an opportunity to connect and network with other creatives/arts workers.
