Ecologies of Creative Practices in Illawarra, Australia

1-day symposium/workshop exploring collective knowledge of arts and related creative practices in Illawarra to develop a Creative Ecology map of the region that identifies extrinsic and intrinsic elements that help facilitate and support these practices. Once completed, the Creative Ecology map provides a visualization of the elements present in the region – and also helps identify areas that might require further development. Hence, the Creative Ecology map also has a diagnostic function.
