TREND SCOUTING: the undercurrents disrupting the cultural sector
Thu. 10 November 2016, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm AEST
What are the trends that every creative entrepreneur in Bundaberg and the Central Queensland region should be thinking about? What impact will these trends have on the cultural and creative industries?
Who are the innovators operating ahead of the curve and how are they changing the landscape?
What is the role of the individual creative and entrepreneur and how can organisations adopt new approaches and business models?
Join a critical discussion headlined by Peter Tullin, Co-Founder, REMIX Summits and CultureLabel.com and facilitated by Rod Ainsworth, Coordinator, Moncrieff Entertainment Centre, to explore the intersection of culture, technology and entrepreneurship.
