Creative Conversations is an annual event as part of Sydney Fringe Festival and presented by Annandale Creative Arts Centre, seeking to engage different voices in a public dialogue around issues that are facing our world.


Following the artist selection process, successful applicants are invited to create a new work during the residency period in response to a common stimulus, in conversation and collaboration with each other, experts, practitioners and people with lived experience connected to the issue. 

The series consisted of a visual art exhibition, performance evening with speakers, as well as opportunities to get involved and respond to the issues. This project is designed to be quick response art, making work in conversation with others and the urgency of the current state of affairs.
