About the Summit
The Creativity Summit 2017 will provide a forum for academics, artists, practitioners and researchers to gather to share and debate issues of relevance to policy and practice both nationally and internationally. The Summit will profile current creativity and education research valuing the voices and contributions of our First Nations peoples and cultures and working towards new visions for education and the arts. This year we will also focus on the role of arts and creativity for citizenship and social action. We acknowledge the particular pertinence of such for providing voice and profile for First Nations peoples and cultures with this year being the 50-year anniversary of the 1967 Referendum, 25 years since the Mabo decision and the 20-year anniversary of the ‘Bringing them Home’ Report. The siting of the AARE conference and this summit in Canberra provides a key opportunity to bring these voices to the fore. The educational and arts perspectives of presenters will also highlight the AARE Conference 2017 theme: ‘Education: What’s politics got to do with it?’ with a focus on ‘creativity, arts, education and citizenship’.
