QATACON22 - Starting Points

Annual State Conference
Fri 15- Sat 16 July | 2022

The theme of QATACON 2022 is Starting Points, which speaks to those creative sparks or inspirations that get our students moving in the direction of a resolved artwork. As well as featuring inspiring keynotes, and our usual suite of engaging artist workshops, we will unpack this theme, asking questions about:

  • how we encourage students to stop staring into space and start art-making?
  • how students start with stimulus and move on to art-making?
  • how students respond to First Nations artists in meaningful and appropriate ways?
