The live-streamed Arts Quest – Heights and Hopes Summit will be held at the Australian National University, School of Music on 12 February 2013. The Summit will bring together three generations of artists – young and emerging, established, and senior artists and mentors to identify issues, aspirations, and solutions relating to arts practice and arts education in Australia. It is the perfect opportunity for you to be involved in this powerful, cultural debate with clear, pragmatic outcomes! Its theme, Living and Learning Creatively – Shaping Our Future Together, is to provide recommendations for the evolving National Cultural Policy, and to facilitate exciting mentoring opportunities for artists of all ages.
Robyn Archer will open the Summit and Peter Garrett will be the Keynote Speaker. Christopher Lawrence, one of Australia's most loved radio broadcasters, will be the MC and the Q&A Panel Facilitator at the event. Other speakers include: Professor David Throsby, Richard Gill, Professor Hugh Mackay (read in absentia), Lisa Colley, Don Aitkin, Monica Penders, and Professor Claudia Visca. Les Murray will read his poetry.
The Summit will conclude with an Artistic Production Thank you Canberra with tantalising performances. It is not to be missed!
The event is a collaboration between the Australian Talented Youth Project, The Australian National University and DEEWR, with the support from Canberra businesses.
