Creativity and music advocacy and speaking
Transform perspectives, influence the arts and create lasting change
What is the future value of the arts, education and creativity?
I have seen how a deeper understanding of creativity has profoundly impacted educators, artists, peak bodies, government, businesses, and community organisations. My presentations explore how successful arts ecosystems can be fostered and how to nurture a rich creative culture that is accessible to all. Dialogue and debate about the unique ability of the arts to develop creativity is encouraged. I have presented across Australia, Europe, Asia and the Pacific.
