Creative Directions 2022

Hope and Independence in Media, Culture and Communications

Wednesday 5th & Thursday 6th October, 2022


In 2022, Creative Directions examines the theme of independence and hope in our media, communications and cultural sectors. After the historic Australian election result of 2022, Australian citizens are seeking something different from their governments and in their working lives. While established power structures are no longer delivering for ordinary people, there are glimpses of hope in the way citizens are organising independently.

This year’s festival brings a broad group of speakers together from industry, government and civil society to ask whether we can find new ways to discuss a better society. We aim to stimulate intelligent conversation, tackle difficult issues, and involve our students and local community in a vibrant discussion in these historic times.

Run by the School of Media, Film and Journalism, Creative Directions is an annual festival of ideas and industry know-how exploring critical issues shaping the contemporary media, cultural and communications industries. #CreativeDirections.
