The Creative Dialogues Program encourages dialogues on new ideas, mediums and initiatives; equips emerging creatives and arts initiatives; and continues a conversation that develops a local sustainable creative scene.

The program is open to everyone, and offers workshops and consultations for artists of all disciplines. All creatives are invited to participate - whether you have a day job or not.

The Creative Dialogues Program consists of workshops, forums and events organised on an annual basis to equip, educate and connect the local creative community and economy. Each event discusses how arts practice influences and shapes culture in Wollongong and around the world.

Except for the Creative Dialogues on Copyright and Contracts, the following dialogues are now open for booking.
