13.06.2019Arts & Culture Taskforce

At our second Arts and Culture Forum on 29 May, AECOM’s Tim O’Loan and Madeline Eads-Dorsey shared news about an exciting series, run in conjunction with the Committee, on the reinvigoration of Fishermans Bend.

An essential part of placemaking and fostering an innovation ecosystem is to ensure a vibrant creative sector. This four part series will include a forum on how creative industries can be promoted and established as part of the development. The event will bring together stakeholders and creatives to answer these critical questions in a collaborative format to develop material. You can make your contribution by registering your interest here.

We also heard from Dr Troy Innocent, RMIT University on transforming Melbourne into a playable city called 64 Ways of Being (see separate item above).

Clive Scott, General Manager, Sofitel Melbourne on Collins gave a brief on the Winter in Melbourne project and other Melbourne tourism updates. Faye Devie, AsiaLink Arts, shared an exciting residency project being developed between the Committee and AsiaLink Arts. The Taskforce also drafted questions for the Meet the Minister event with Minister Foley.

We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting in August, hosted by Melbourne Achiever Award winner The Australian Ballet. Feel free to contact David Prior with any topic suggestions.
