2015 APACA Conference
Mobilise: Creating Momentum. Carriageworks, Sydney 17 – 20 August, 2015
Mobilising the Industry
Recent events highlight the need to mobilise our industry and improve our advocacy for the arts. What tools and skills do we require to be successful? What can we learn from campaigns in other industries?
Speaker: Paul Oosting
Position: Acting National Director
