Creative Works Conference connects over 200 professionals from Ontario’s arts, creative, cultural and heritage sector, to explore trends that will impact creative work and the creative community. Creative works encourages partnership among cultural workers at different levels of their careers, including students, creative entrepreneurs and workers in for-profit industries, non-profit organizations and government agencies. Given the feedback from 150 survey responses collected since January 2018, this year’s theme is: Engagement.
The Creative Works audience is motivated by collaboration, growth in the sector, innovation, and 21st century trends. By engaging with this vital community, sponsors get the opportunity to demonstrate support and gain access to new relationships with a group that is driven by success and invested in developing solutions, improving sustainability and enhancing capacity building.
