Creative Conversations

The ‘Creative Conversations’ series was an important part of the City of Greater Bendigo’s community engagement during the preparation of Greater CREATIVE Bendigo. Great thinkers, artists, storytellers and locals who are really making their creative mark, were invited to share what they think will make Bendigo an even more creative city. Creative Conversations were free public events featuring a number of new and different speakers from across a number of creative industries. Read more about each session:


Following the success of the previous Arts and Culture Strategy 2008-2011, the City is developing a new Arts and Creative Industry Strategy. The new strategy embraces a new approach to thinking about creativity in our region.
