Registrations close 20 November

The Arts Learning Forum program is now live – a three-day event for arts professionals with a role or interest in arts education, learning or engagement across all art forms, ages and communities. Delegates will exchange insights, practices and creative ideas and be inspired by Australian and international leaders including Katherine Zeserson (UK), Anna Cutler Director of Learning from the Tate in London, and Deborah Cheetham Artistic Director of Short Black Opera Company.

The forum is part of the Australia Council’s continued commitment to build capacity of the sector and to help make the arts more accessible to all Australians. It extends the work of the Arts Education Forum established by Major Performing Arts companies in 2010.

Drawing on the talents of over 60 contributing speakers, workshop leaders, panelists, provocateurs and a Twitter Poet, the Forum will harness the collective knowledge and experience of arts learning leaders from around Australia.

The Forum will include workshops, pecha kucha sessions, panels discussions, open space facilitation, open mic sessions, debate and resources across the breadth of the arts sector. Participants will be encouraged to share and discuss approaches to arts learning including: strategic vision, programs and their delivery, engagement methodologies and other issues.

Registrations close on 20 November 2015 (unless sold out prior). For more information and information on how to register click here.
