Overview: The 51st Academy Symposium - At the Crossroad? Australia's Cultural Future - will explore Australia’s cultural terrain in light of recent events and longer-standing disruptions to consider what transformations are needed to secure our cultural and creative future. Bringing together perspectives from researchers, practitioners, creators and policy makers, it will consider how innovative cultural policy settings and creative practice could together underpin a path to recovery, for our people and our communities.

In addition to the five Symposium webinars, there will be a number of free satellite events exploring intersections between creative practice, research, industry and government. We are also creating opportunities to bring participants together in an informal online networking space.

The webinars are open to all and will bring together Academy Fellows, humanities researchers and representatives from the arts and culture sector, government, universities, industry, philanthropy and the public.
