EVENT : PERTH : HATCHED Symposium

HATCHED ARTS RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM
Creating futures - engaging the past

A fully refereed mini-conference, the HATCHED Symposium features discussions that stem from the theme of developing creative futures. The three papers presented in this session explore themes ranging from the impact of technology on creative practices to examine the factors that shape and impact the development and success of creative communities. The presentations will be followed by an open session where the audience is invited to participate in the discussion and key themes.

HATCHED FORUM
Going Pro-establishing a professional practice after art school

The Hatched Forum brings together a distinguished group of artists and arts industry professionals from around Australia to discuss practical tactics and strategies for the development of a professional practice after art school. Highlighting a range of potential actions and initiatives through the examination of stories of success (and struggle) the two sessions aim to provide real-life working models on what to do next, and how to pursue longer term goals and aspirations. Key themes for this discussion will include how to establish a sustainable art practice, how to create your own opportunities and how to extend your career horizons across the national and international arts communities.

Speakers include: Felicity Johnston, Aaron Seeto, Darren Sylvester, Chris Bennie, Jo Darbyshire and Fiona Maxwell.
