Creative Spaces Summit 2023: a stimulating provocation of art and ideas

This year's Summit was invigorating, full of insights and sure to leave a lasting impact.

This year’s Creative Spaces Summit was designed to interrogate the role of galleries as spaces for community activation in addition to their traditional roles as places for creativity and cultural interactions. Hosted by the Regional Galleries Association (RGA) of South Australia, and held at the exciting new Lot Fourteen innovation centre on North Terrace, Adelaide’s premier cultural boulevard, the Summit offered three days of collegial networking, creative and professional stimulation, along with a range of social activities too. From the highlight keynote addresses to the more intimate workshops and breakout sessions, the program offered a stimulating mix of ideas and provocations. As the first National Summit to be held since 2019 (for obvious reasons…) this was also a valuable opportunity for delegates to regroup, reconnect, and meet friends both old and new. Following are a few highlights.
