Creating Out Loud Industry Briefing

After 18-months of close collaboration with national peak bodies, arts companies, and independent artists and arts workers around Australia, Dr Kate Power will officially launch the Creating Out Loud peer coaching program for the arts and culture sector at an Industry Briefing hosted by the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA), on Thursday, 14 July 2022.

This new program supports arts workers in sharing knowledge and building relationships of mutual support, meeting regularly in small groups for courageous conversations about their artistic and business practices.

Participants can choose to join either

  • a topic-based program, addressing key issues facing the sector, or
  • a goal-focused approach, where participants bring their own questions or challenges to each session and receive input from the group.

Creating Out Loud was supported by an Industry Reference Group comprising Theatre Network Australia (TNA), Queensland Ballet, La Boite Theatre, NAVA, Arts Nexus, and BlakDance. TNA also co-hosted three quarters of the peer coaching circles, through which the final program was developed.

Ninety two per cent of participants say they are likely or very likely to recommend Creating Out Loud to other colleagues working in the arts, with qualitative feedback including comments like these:

  • this was beautifully curated and it enabled us to go deep, but also have a really good time.
  • highly, highly recommend, because it's just been a great way to draw out a lot of the complexities that we deal with.

In this Industry Briefing, Dr Kate Power will explain what Creating Out Loud is, why and how it was developed, and how you might use it in your own organisation and/or network.
