Future/Forward: artistic courage

On 15 and 16 August, over 200 artists, arts leaders, philanthropists, government advisers and political decision makers will converge on the National Gallery of Australia and Parliament House, Canberra to participate in ‘Future/Forward’. This two-day event presented by National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA) aims to facilitate visual artists’ thinking on how best to advance rights, sustain incomes and develop arts practice in Australia today. Hypotheticals, scenarios, games and case studies are highlights of the event with the first day’s focus on institutional aspects of professional practice, while day two discusses politics and policy change.
