RISE UP SESSIONS

This year shares a stronger learning focus with the new Rise Up Sessions for professionals and students in creative industries. During the main break of the conference, we'll share a series of discussions and interactions.
Hosted by previous speakers and industry leaders who will share discussions on creative mental health, protecting your creative rights and guided discussions on personal experiences in different industries with art, design, and making.
These are completely free, and are limited to only 30 people each so those registered get more out of each session.

REAL TALK

KITIYA PALASKAS
+ THOMAS JACKSON

Real Talk is an online project that aims to encourage conversations around wellbeing issues experienced by creative people as part of their artistic process. By sharing articles, interviews, and stories based around monthly themes, the project aims to build a space filled with empowering resources to help you lead your best creative life.

Real Talk is collaborating with MAKEit MADEit to host a special panel event. The panel will feature five inspiring members of the creative industry and will be moderated by former MAKEit MADEit speakers, craft-based designer Kitiya Palaskas from Melbourne and renowned Sydney artist Thomas Jackson. Panelists will share insight and experiences in response to a series of questions and prompts on the topic of "Success".
