Event Session - The Impact of Creative Placemaking

Welcome! We’d love your feedback!!

The Arts Front Platform is in live beta testing in 2020. The development team are working on it right now. The full Arts Front system will be launched in November. Please take a look around and feel free to try things out. Features will continue to change and develop but any content you create (profiles, events, groups, actions, reports) can stay in the system.

Your content always belongs to you in Arts Front. You can delete your profile and content at any time.

If you have a question or you see something that’s broken or you have ideas for new features or improvements we would love to hear from you.

Day 1 - Wednesday 2nd, 11:45am - 12:30pm AEST

The Main Event

Changing the lens of placemaking to focus through the eyes of artists and creative thinkers provides a unique opportunity for regional communities. How do we consider place from a spiritual First Peoples' perspective and embed their stories? How do regional communities learn from successful urban placemaking and make it locally relevant? We discuss why it is important to place creatives in the centre of placemaking.
