Creative Dialogues provide residents with a chance to talk and learn more about emerging issues by offering a variety of discussions on cultural development and creativity.
To keep up to date with all the latest news and events sign up for our Cultural Services e-newsletter.
In 2017, our Creative Dialogues Program will offer two threads of conversation – The Basics Series and The Banter Series.
The Basics Series is open to everyone, and offers workshops and consultations for emerging artists of all disciplines. The Banter Series continues the conversation about how arts practice influences and shapes culture in Wollongong and around the world.
All events are free and provided by Wollongong City Council's Cultural Services.
