Creative Coalition Festival: A Cultural Change

Back to top

Creativity can change the world for the better. The first step towards meaningful change is conversation, and our Creative Coalition Festival 2022 connects audiences, creatives, and industry leaders, to help shape the future of our sector. We invite you to join us in reimagining, redefining, and reigniting the future of creativity.

Here is a preview selection of some of the line up thought leaders and changemakers…
