This year’s summit theme ‘Creativity in a post-truth world’ will provoke delegates to think about the role creative practitioners, organisations and institutions can play in influencing, reflecting and interpreting our times.
Creativity explores new ideas, new perspectives and new frontiers and this year’s summit will investigate:
how creativity can influence and shape public debate;
the role of the creative as activist, culture shaper and game changer; and
how creativity can respond to uncertain and unsettling times.
