EVENTS

Events

Our events over the year divide mainly into public forums and discussions around contemporary issues in the performing arts and our breakfasts for the business community.

The Arts and Public Life
Breakfast Series

These breakfasts were begun in Sydney in 2005 and have recently expanded to occasional events in Melbourne and Brisbane. Their purpose is to bring together people in the corporate world with an interest in the arts, and those who work in the arts. A speaker prominent in public life is invited to give their insight into the business of the arts in a way which the audiences find stimulating, surprising and sometimes challenging. Inspiration for these events grew from recognition of the increasing responsibility for arts governance that the business world is accepting as board members, sponsors and patrons. The breakfasts in Sydney are now held at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Circular Quay and sponsored by Fresh Catering and Holding Redlich.

Book launches and forums

These are held in a variety of venues between 6 and 8pm to discuss matters of public interest in the arts. Often they are launches or debates around issues raised by the authors of Platform Papers. They are held mainly in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane and at in association with a sympathetic arts organisation. Among these have been the NSW and Queensland State libraries, QPAC and the Judith Wright Centre in Brisbane; the Malthouse and the Koori Heritage Centre in Melbourne; NIDA, AFTRS and Parliament House in Sydney. Speakers are prominent practitioners and the audience are encouraged to participate.
