Budget cuts proposed by the Abbott government have instigated a proliferation of restructures across the public sector. These restructures will have far reaching impacts on culture and education.
The Centre for Creative Arts at La Trobe University is organising a conference to discuss the current re-structuring in the arts, culture, creative sector in Australia.
Re-structure Conference 2014
20th Nov 2014
11am – 7pm
La Trobe University (City campus)
215 Franklin Street Melbourne
This conference looks at the current state of the arts, and considers alternative modes of culture and knowledge production within times of shrinking public expenditures. Featuring participants from performance, fashion, creative arts, gaming, media and community intervention, the event explores both broader sustainable strategies as well as “clever partial solutions” to cultural and knowledge production in a post-public sector environment.
In seeking alternatives, the Re-structure 2014 looks to the proliferation of smaller scale community economies worldwide, in both on and offline environments, and to the modes of cultural production and knowledge exchange with other sectors such as environmental NGOs.
Re-structure 2014 is organised by Hugh Davies & Jan Hendrik Brueggemeier.
