This conference is designed for Senior Secondary School & Tertiary Visual Art and Creative Media students. It is an opportunity for them to access, discover and engage with successful artists who are working within the wider creative industry. The aim is to inspire students to consider their own creative futures and what pathway they might take to achieve their creative career goals.
The concept behind the name Untitled is that just as a new artwork is untitled or a blank digital document is untitled before it evolves, so too are our students. They don’t know what they don’t know, and they are indeed blank canvasses ready to evolve into something special as they develop their individual skills and talents.
Untitled: Creative Futures Conference is unique; there is currently no other conference of its kind in New Zealand that is specifically designed for students to explore their creative career pathways.
Each Untitled: Creative Futures Conference is based around a theme that relates to working in the creative industry. This year’s theme is:
The Passion Project vs The Client Brief.
It will be interesting to hear how the guest speakers work between these two quite different approaches to their work.
