Future of Arts, Culture and Technology (FACT) symposium


Future of Arts, Culture and Technology (FACT) symposium

14 Feb 2024 – 15 Feb 2024

ACMI's second annual two-day symposium explores the future of arts, culture, and technology in Australia – and the mindsets, capabilities and skills we need to get there.

Presented with Creative Australia and proudly supported by Creative Victoria and Bloomberg, this year’s program is aimed at cultural leaders, policy makers, practitioners and those wanting to understand how we make the most of the possible future trajectories of technology in the arts. In 2024 we have core themes of AI/automation and climate – and how the cultural sector will change over the next ten years as a result.

You will hear from artists and creators, senior cultural leaders, experienced creative technologists, academics and researchers from across the creative industries in a mix of presentation formats and panel discussions that explore the big issues in the field, and ways through the complexities of the next decade.

In 2024, we are going deep on the implications of automation, artificial 'intelligence' and computational capacities in the creative sectors; and intertwined with this is the other big theme of climate and how cultural institutions and creators make sense of, and help our communities chart a course towards, a low carbon society and economy.

Hosted at ACMI, the FACT symposium grew out of the multi-art form CEO Digital Mentoring program which ran throughout 2021 and 2022, and has recently been exported to New Zealand in conjunction with the National Digital Forum.
