The Kingston Arts Precinct Creative Panel will explore the opportunities this precinct presents for Canberra from an arts, design, and cultural perspective. Through a question-and-answer format, the panel will discuss trends, examples and learnings from their fields of expertise that are relevant to the new precinct.

What is an arts precinct? How does design impact experience? How can we acknowledge and celebrate the First Nations, industrial and architectural heritage simultaneously, and in a meaningful way? How does one precinct impact a city?

This event is an opportunity for the community to ask the big questions of subject matter experts.

Date: Saturday 7 May 2022

Venue: Rydges Hotel, 17 Canberra Avenue

Time: 10am - 11:30 am

Doors open from 9.30am

Registration is essential
