Heart Open: Innovation Interchange straddles the crossroads of business, creativity and artistic expression.

A collaborative event by Hunter Innovation Festival and Hunter Young Professionals

About this Event

Heart Open Innovation Interchange straddles the crossroads of business, creativity and artistic expression.

Hunter Young Professionals, Ignite Innovation, Heart Open and The Lock-Up will come together to derail conventions on Friday 17 May as part of the Hunter Innovation Festival. Come interrogate, celebrate and play with that loaded term, “Creative Industries”. Are its practitioners complacent content makers or sulky starving artists? Are profit and passion mutually exclusive? What are the shared experiences and the differences between professionals who work creatively with those who don’t?

With robust discussions, performances, pitches and improvisational speed networking, Heart Open Innovation Interchange will take you on a controversial journey through Novocastrian creative culture, while simultaneously showcasing some of the city’s brightest minds. We’ll get to the heart of making art and making a living.

This event is a collaboration between Heart Open, The Lock-Up, Hunter Young Professionals, Ignite Innovation, Hunter Writers Centre and is part of the 2019 Hunter Innovation Festival. Check out what else is on the program at the Hunter Innovation Festival web page.
