At the Crossroad? Australia's Cultural Future

Marking the end of a tumultuous year for our arts and cultural sector, the 51st Academy of the Humanities Symposium ‘At the Crossroad? Australia’s Cultural Future’ brings together practitioners, creators, policy makers and researchers to consider how innovative cultural policy settings and creative practice could together underpin a path to recovery, for ourselves and our communities.

Our free series of webinars will deliver a daily dose of ideas, debate and inspiration over the course of a week.

Topics include: ‘Technologies and Creative Futures’; ‘Continuous and Diverse: A Long History of Many Cultures’; ‘Policy Matters: Key Insights from A New Approach’; ‘Connecting Policy and Artists’; and ‘Culturing the Creative Economy’.

See our stellar line-up of speakers and program on the Symposium webpage, along with details about a commissioned performance by singer-songwriter Nancy Bates; and satellite events with the Australia Council for the Arts and NIDA.

Principal Sponsor: A New Approach

The Symposium will be held as a series of free online webinars from Monday 16 to Friday 20 November 2020.
