The Antipodes symposium in Wellington includes sessions open to the public at Massey Wellington and the City Gallery.

Topics include:
- Creative entrepreneurship - the contribution of art, media, design and music to the burgeoning entrepreneurial economy. Panellists: Rollo Wenlock, the CEO of Wipster; Allana Krause, co-founder of Loomio and a director of the Enspiral Foundation; and Tui Te Hau, general manager of Mahuki, the innovation space at New Zealand’s national museum Te Papa.

- Re-imagining technologies - how new or augmented existing technologies create new means of connectedness and ways of imaging our world. Panellists: Peter Walter of local firm Point Zero, and academics from the College of Creative Arts.

- Public programming - how creative practices work with other disciplines to create new and exciting public outcomes. Panellists: Shelagh Magadza, artistic director of the New Zealand Festival, Professor Chris Bennewith of Massey’s College of Creative Arts, and Mark Amery, co-founder of Letting Space and one of New Zealand’s leading art commentators.

- The role of the art school as a place of provocation/performed engagements - creative practices that propose different ways of thinking and give a different perspective on contemporary life.

The forum is organised under the joint auspices of the French Embassy in Wellington, Massey University's College of Creative Arts and Colab at AUT. It will explore aspects of the broad rubric of creativity as a driver of, and way of coping with increasingly rapid societal and technological changes. These first contacts, besides providing an opportunity for sharing of ideas and best practices around creative ecologies, will lay the ground for French and New Zealand organisations to engage in a deeper dialogue.
