Creative leaders asked to join Vivid Ideas

A call for creative industry leaders has been sent by NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment, Andrew Stoner for next year’s Vivid Ideas.

The industry and business events pillar of Vivid Sydney will return through May and June next year offering a program of creative industry talks, conferences, workshops, panels, showcases, exhibitions, creative product launches, award presentations, and social and networking functions.

“In 2013, more than 800,000 people attended Vivid Sydney across the 18 days of the festival. The Vivid Ideas program showcased 122 unique events across 25 Sydney venues, including the Vivid Ideas Exchange at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, and a wealth of creative local and international talent,” said Stoner. “Vivid Ideas provides an excellent opportunity for creative industries practitioners and businesses to align with this globally recognised event, right here in Sydney, the creative hub of the Asia-Pacific.”

Vivid Sydney Creative Director, Ignatius Jones, said: “There are many ways to get involved in Vivid Ideas, from developing a forum or workshop and hosting a networking function to launching your latest innovation or running a think tank or debate session.

“So far, more than 1300 creative industry practitioners across the world have registered interest in submitting designs for Vivid Light, the centrepiece of the Vivid Sydney festival, which closes on Friday 4 October. We’re expecting a similar high level of interest in the Vivid Ideas program, with more opportunities to participate than ever before.”

Expressions of Interest to participate in Vivid Ideas 2014 will close on 4 November 2013. The Vivid Ideas Expression of Interest form is available via
