Creative State Summit 2019
30-31 May


We invite you to be part of a meeting of minds, ideas and perspectives at Victoria’s third creatives industries summit.

This year’s summit will take a bold step into the future and ask ‘What’s Next?’

An array of local and international speakers will explore the innovations, opportunities, and disruptions that lie ahead for the creative industries – locally and globally.

Delegates will be challenged to consider what the future holds for their own career, organisation or sector and how they can build their skills, transform their practice, and lay the foundations for a sustainable future.

We’ll also consider how we can collectively shape and future-proof Victoria’s creative industries more broadly.

An initiative of the Victorian Government’s Creative State strategy, the Creative State Summit brings together people working across the state’s creative and cultural sectors for two days of inspiration, connection and skills development.

Welcome from the Minister for Creative Industries


2019 Creative State Summit

The third Creative State Summit returns this May to explore how we can take our creative sectors to the next level in a time of great change.

The 2019 Summit will ask “What’s Next?”

What does the future hold for artists and creatives? How will new and emerging technologies change the way we create, present and market creative work? What new opportunities will emerge? And what are the big issues that will disrupt or influence our creative industries in the decades ahead?

The Summit presents leading speakers and bold ideas from across the globe and our local creative community.

It couldn’t be a better time for this discussion. As we near the conclusion of the Victorian Government’s four-year Creative State strategy, our sights are firmly set on the next four years and beyond.

The Summit is sure to provide plenty of food for thought, inspiration and ideas for us all.

Martin Foley
Minister for Creative Industries
