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, 1-1.45pm AEST, 14 July via Zoom.

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 has been 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.

To launch this new program, NAVA is hosting an online industry briefing with Dr Kate Power 

1.00-1.45pm AEST
