FORUM: Re-Imagining The Gold Coast
How do we re-imagine the Gold Coast as a cultural city?
Join your creative community and an amazing panel from the arts, indigenous, sustainability and business communities to discuss and imagine the opportunities for creatives, tourism, community, business and enterprising people across the Gold Coast.
What’s in it for you? If you work in a creative field, are in business and thinking outside the square, if you’re interested in cultural tourism opportunities, or are passionate about sustainability and connecting local living economy, this forum will offer ideas, challenges and possibilities.
In an often disconnected city, here’s a chance to meet, share and connect across the Gold Coast’s creative community.
You could meet a city you never knew you lived in.
