Designing an arts centre for the unpredictable future

Sat 27 March, 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Presented By:
Geelong Arts Centre
Studio 4, Geelong Arts Centre, 81 Ryrie Street Geelong
Event Type:
Talk or presentation
Event Topic:
Culture and heritage

Our expert panel will explore how our cultural institutions will keep up with a rapidly changing and unpredictable world. The $167.5m redevelopment of the Geelong Arts Centre provides an extraordinary case-study for incorporating the rich heritage of the original organisation with the evolution in global thinking regarding the role of arts and cultural facilities. Cultural institutions simultaneously embrace and wrestle with the profound impacts of digital revolution on the cultural landscape. New technologies continue to change the way arts and culture are imagined, created, experienced and consumed, and our panel reflect on these consequences.

Expert Panel:
Joel McGuiness. CEO Geelong Arts Centre
Jill Garner. Victorian Government Architect
Ian McDougall. Founding Director, ARM Architecture
Andy Hayles. Managing Partner, Charcoalblue (London)
Erin Shepherd. Consultant, Charcoalblue
Andrew Nicol. Founding Director, A.E.N. Advisory and Design Services
