In April 2015, PUBLIC Symposium brought 26 change-makers and leading experts from around the world together with a diverse and talented audience from around the country in Perth, Western Australia.
The conversation explored the transformation of cities, regions and communities through creativity, and how we can collectively shape our futures for the common good. Discussion spanned the onstage, online, and in-action projects or showcases bringing the ideas to life. For many, taking inspiration both from the speakers and the peers in the room, it sparked an ongoing dialogue that is now manifesting in new approaches, projects and renewed vigour.
The following offers a selection of the presentations and ideas from the Symposium. We hope you’ll be inspired and join the ongoing conversation through PUBLIC 2016.
