Future/Forward is a two-day summit that will bring together arts practitioners, academics and industry professionals to engage in discussions about the current state of the visual arts in Australia and to imagine new possibilities for developing contemporary practice.

Future/Forward will present a diverse range of speakers, both local and international challenging the changes, assumptions and current debates in the arts sector.

Tamara Winikoff, NAVA’s Executive Director says, “This is the first visual arts summit to be held in Australia. It will provide a great opportunity for speakers and delegates to grapple with important issues around which there are conflicting views. We look forward to enabling the sector to engage publicly with some of the hard things that matter to all of us.”

Support for this national dialogue is offered through travel bursaries in several states made available to art practitioners to attend the summit from around Australia. The bursaries will cover flights, accommodation, per diems and summit registration fees.

Early bird registrations close on 10 October 2014.
