Remodelling our future

How does an industry find momentum and collectively shape change? Local and inter/national arts leaders discuss forging a way forward that promotes equity and flexibility through forward thinking. From developing organisational and personal tools for advocacy to leading in the face of change, panellists from distinct organisations and independent arts practices bring their lived experience to a series of conversations around creating a sustainable and inclusive industry.
