Submit your event now to be part of Vivid Ideas in 2016.
As the creative industries pillar of Vivid Sydney, Vivid Ideas brings together the conversations, conventions and big announcements for the creative sector in one place and time. It is growing at an exponential rate, and has the potential to soon be the world’s most significant creative industries festival.
In 2015, the Vivid Ideas program consisted of over 152 events in 53 venues, presented by 102 event owners, and included co-produced creative conferences and public events in venues around Sydney, and events hosted in the Vivid Ideas Exchange at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia.
Vivid Ideas engaged over 80,000 participants in 2015, and is set to expand even further in 2016.
Events must be related to the creative industries (either serving a creative sector audience or connecting the sector with the broader economy) and must take place in Sydney during the Vivid Sydney season, from May 27 – June 13 2016.
Vivid Ideas is designed to support the creative industries and to draw visitation to Sydney. The organisers are particularly interested in supporting events which ignite a national conversation, bring professional practitioners to Sydney for training and development, and which actively build networks across the Asia Pacific.
Vivid Ideas is entirely focused on professional and market development events for the creative industries – we do not present performances or light installations in our program. If you are interested in submitting a light installation for Vivid Sydney, please see the website for the Vivid Light EOI process.
Submissions will be reviewed by the Vivid Ideas curator, and if considered a valuable addition to the program, based on key criteria, you will be invited to enter into discussions about how best to position your event as part of Vivid Ideas.
The Vivid Ideas expression of interest process is open until 23 September 2015. Submit your idea here.
