Arts Front Under 30

Working Group Leader - Sara Strachan

Arts Front Under 30 is envisaged as a three day gathering of 100 diverse young people from across Australia in 2018.

“We want to take the lead in setting the vision for arts and culture in this country in 2030 and beyond. Let’s face it - by that time we will be the ones running the sector anyway! So why not take the lead now and create a future that young artists actually want!”

Key Points (Updated Live)

  • Neurodiversity : How can the arts become an integral influencer and beneficiary of the wellbeing of neurodivergent people?

  • Local Means Local : How can regional, rural and remote communities prevent the outsourcing of creative industries in favour of preserving the cultural identity of their area?

  • Queer Representation : How can we implement, foster and normalise positive representation of queer people in the arts in Australia?

  • DOWN WITH CA$H: How can the arts “sector” lead the way in decentralising profit and “having a career” in favour of linking with community and engaging in sustained, meaningful artistic practice?
