Back for its third year, MAKEit MADEit returns as one of Australia’s premier creative events for the arts, making and design communities.

Set in the sunny east coast city of Newcastle this years event will deliver unique presentations with Australian and International Artists, Designers and Makers.

Held at Newcastle Museum, the conference invites an incredible selection of artists and industry professionals to share their stories.

Each will share key insights into their unique practice and processes along with a strong panel discussion on arts based funding.

This years panel consists of a diverse selection of artists, designers, makers, artist managers and also grant and crowdfunding facilitators.

Interact, network and converse with fellow artists over creative talks, exhibitions, discussions, masterclasses and live music at an after party you’ll always remember.

Join us on Saturday 12th August for an event that has proven to educate, excite and inspire to become a nationally recognised conference.
