The Indigenous Business, Enterprise & Corporations Conference (IBECC16)
1-2 December @ UWA Business School
Creative Directions in the Indigenous Art and Culture Economy.
IBECC is Australia’s premier Indigenous business event. In 2016, the IBECC16 Conference featured over 100 speakers on topics including economic policy, business development, leadership development, innovation, Indigenous women in business, the Indigenous digital economy, Native Title, culture, arts, housing, health, natural resource management, and more.
On the world stage we see the rise of indigenous television series like, ‘Black Comedy’ and ‘Cleverman’, movies and theatre. Aboriginal arts administrators, musicians, artists and writers are receiving backing from large marketing and distribution firms. Creative, marketing and media companies are on the rise. Shakespeare is even speaking Noongar! Times are rapidly changing, and creativity is back in the ‘black’.
