This year the festival will address how Creativity Shapes Culture. Across our keynotes, Q&As and workshops the interdependency of creativity and culture will be explored. The world is in a state of flux and the stories being told by our industry are more powerful as a result. There will be three tracks that will inform each session at the festival.
Examining cracks in a time of change to build togetherness
