Creating Out Loud industry briefing

Online launch of a new small-group peer coaching program designed with and for the Australian arts and culture sector, 14 July 2022 via Zoom.

Creating Out Loud

Responding to the devastation wrought by COVID-19, Creating Out Loud helps Australia’s arts and culture sector by

  • facilitating networking and knowledge-sharing,
  • promoting strategic conversations about key issues affecting the sector, and
  • building relationships of mutual support. 

Participants can join

  • a 6-week topic-based program, ideal for early and mid-career artists and arts managers, which addresses key issues facing the sector, or
  • a goal-focused program, ideal for experienced artists and arts executives, where participants bring their own questions or challenges to the session to receive feedback from their peers.

These self-facilitated programs can also be used in combination.

Creating Out Loud was developed and tested with artists and arts managers around Australia over the past 18-months – and the response has been consistently positive across diverse art forms, locations, organisation types, and job descriptions.
