Here is a Professional Development opportunity that will be of interest to ATOM QLD members.
Creative and cultural leader Kirby Ferguson is part of a new breed of creatives using the internet to execute entire projects. As a writer, filmmaker and documentarian, his works have amassed in excess of 5 million views online. Kirby’s approach to creativity is helping to shape how we relate to, learn and share content in the digital era. In exploring creative styles, he also questions how the work of previous cultural groundbreakers such as Thomas Edison, Led Zeppelin and William Burroughs are today being transformed, referenced and deconstructed by new creative formats.
Fresh from presenting his groundbreaking work Everything Is A Remix at the internationally acclaimed TEDGlobal 2012 in Edinburgh, Kirby is heading to Australia to discuss his unique take on contemporary culture and online publishing.
Everything Is A Remix explores the history and evolution of the remix culture in modern life. This series has been a catalyst for Kirby to discuss the nature of creativity by breaking down ideas of originality; exploring artistic, technological and business forms. He considers how this culture enriches society, and explores its influence on the future of content creation.
Presented by Portable Tours and supported by ATOM QLD, the event will consist of a keynote presentation and Q&A, followed by networking drinks. It will take place in Brisbane on Thursday 4 October at The Edge.
