Creative3 International Forum in Brisbane
Sep '11
The Creative3 International Forum returns to Brisbane in October this year with an unparalleled line-up of leading edge thinkers and experienced creative practitioners from around the world.

Leading the impressive speaker line-up is design luminary Stefan Sagmeister, the internationally acclaimed, two-time Grammy Award winning designer of New York based Sagmeister Inc..Sagmeister has designed for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, HBO, and the Guggenheim Museum and has won two Grammies for the Talking Heads and Brian Eno & David Byrne package designs.

Sagmeister will be joined by Orsola de Castro, Founder and Curator of the British Fashion Council's Estethica and co-founder of the green label From Somewhere. From Somewhere opened its first flagship store in London's Notting Hill and from there have designed best selling upcycled collections with Speedo liability stock to clothing for mass market retailer, Tesco. Orsola is well known for her Oscar Dress for Livia Firth, wife of best actor nominee Colin in 2010. In September 2006 with her partner Filippo Ricci, she started Estethica, the sustainable fashion trade fair at London Fashion Week which she curates and organises for the British Fashion Council.

Other speakers include Andrew Mason, producer of The Matrix, Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions, and leading advertising executive Craig Davis to name but a few. Host of the event, Creative Enterprise Australia CEO Anna Rooke said Creative3 offers a rare opportunity for many Australian creative businesses to hear first-hand and learn from some of the world's most inspiring and influential creatives.

“Creative3 2011 will build on the success of last year's inaugural event by again focusing on the three fundamental elements of creativity, enterprise and investment, while exploring the real issues faced by creative businesses and the latest trends and technologies to advance and sustain growth,” Ms Rooke said.

“This year, we will also look at how collaboration is being used to drive greater levels of creativity and innovation, develop new business models for creative start-ups, and attract different forms of investment.”

Trends such as disruptive entrepreneurs and their role in influencing new content, distribution and business models will provoke discussion and arm creative organisations with what's become essential knowledge and unique capabilities in today's 24/7 socially connected world.

The forum will bring together a 300 plus audience from leading creative entrepreneurs to Australia's emerging talent and offer a practical hands-on program with more interactive panels and masterclasses to provide even greater opportunity to mix and learn from the world's best.

Attendees will include early stage creative companies,
designers, growing SMEs, entrepreneurs, members of the Australian Association for Angel Investors (AAAI), Creative Industries Innovation Centre (CIIC) staff, academics from leading Australian universities, private investors, and government agencies associated with creative industries, new technologies and innovation.
