Peggy Oki Keynote - 3:00 - 3:30

Peggy Oki is a living icon and pioneer of the skateboarding industry. She broke barriers in the world of 70's skateboarding as the only female member of the Zephyr Skateboard team, made famous in the Sean Penn narrated film, Dogtown & Z-Boys. The Z-Boys crew basically created the entire skateboarding industry as we now know it.

Since her Z-Boys days, Peggy has gone on to to study environmental biology and establish a succesful art career. She is also a tireless advocate for cetacean rights through her Origami Whales Project, and has a deep commitment to our planet that drives her to inspire people around the world to make a difference. She inspires not only with her art, she inspires with her actions.

Peggy has an incredibly inspiring story to tell and we are thrilled to have her as our special keynote guest at CURVY 2018.

For this panel, Peggy Oki is joined on stage by an amazing group of creative women that are finding this balance in their own unique ways. They will also unveil an exciting CURVY project that they are collaborating on later in 2018.

Background

So much of the vision and spectacle upon which creative industries turn is cultivated by women, whose passion for media, business, creativity, technology, community and breakthrough ideas is what drives their work, and inspires ours.

We see evidence of their innovation every day, but so rarely do these women clamour for the limelight that an opportunity to hear them speak is a precious one. By sharing their smarts they encourage other creative women to unlock their own strengths, talents and capacity to influence change.

And although the names involved are a who’s who of women that are breaking boundaries, CURVY has a uniquely down to earth, community atmosphere that is highly inclusive. CURVY is a great opportunity to rub shoulders with like minded creative souls, make new contacts, as well as friends and colleagues.

For women looking to build or amplify a successful creative business or career, you do not want to miss CURVY.

2018 marks 12 years in Australia for CURVY.

Format

Each year CURVY presents a series of talks, workshops, awards, exhibitions, launches & events, and presents the latest CURVY book and magazine. The forum showcases ideas, tips and insights that give attendees a female perspective of the future trends breaking boundaries in progressive, creative industries at home and abroad.

Featured talent joins the CURVY alumni, an international collective in its thousands. Around these, CURVY cultivates an inspired community - creative, professional women, upwardly mobile and future-focused. The latest generation of outstanding female talent and vision.

CURVY is all about bringng together progressive thinking creative women and future forecasting what is in store for 2018 and beyond. We ask our panel of proven boundary breakers from design, photography, fashion, publishing, music, technology, commerce, print, digital and social media to “gaze around the creative content corner and tell us what’s happening next”.

On stage we present our latest batch of boundary breakers - undeniably cool girls that have carved out undeniably cool creative careers, their own way, on their own terms. We ask how they have achieved what so many seek, and what they have done to make sure they retain their distinct individuality in an environment where creatives, companies and brands are more connected than ever before.

A key focus to this special event is also the finance of creativity. Threaded across topics will be approaches for 2018 that will help you to better commercialise your creative skills, how to build a solid financial platform and sucessful creative career.

​CURVY is Presented by ADOBE.
