Since the beginning of consciousness, artists have been humanity’s great sense makers, the transdisciplinary storytellers, taking us to the edges of reality and beyond to shape new ways of feeling, seeing and being.

Never before in human history has there been a greater need to explore what matters most in this wondrous world – to intuit, examine, interpret, guide, inspire and inform new ways of thinking, living and being in this extraordinary place.

‘So as you draft your intent and craft its manifest – how will you shape our image in this world, and not the world in our image?’

This session brings Trish Hansen in conversation with Debbie Pryor to explore the unique and crucial role of artists, makers, cultural producers and their agents, as the curators of the future – transforming the chaos and ambiguity into curiosity and wonder for a reality beyond what has become.
