Creative Talks: Lecture series by Renew Newcastle


Renew Newcastle have announced the launch of Creative Talks, a monthly breakfast lecture series where local creatives from all fields can meet, greet and eat while hearing some sage advice from a person who has made their living from being creative.

It’s an opportunity for local creatives from all manner of backgrounds to connect, learn and be inspired by each other and a guest who will speak about the lessons they have learned growing their art into a commercial success. This will be followed by an audience Q&A and the opportunity to mingle with other local creatives.

Attendance is free and breakfast (coffee, tea, pastries and fruit) is provided.

The first Creative Talks will take place from 8.30am on Friday 7 September 2012 at the John Paynter Gallery at The Lock-Up Cultural Centre, Hunter Street, Newcastle.

The first creative to present is Melbourne-dwelling Novocastrian fine artist Lucas Grogan whose experience has extended beyond exhibition work to include commissions for wall and window murals, sculpture, album and magazine cover art and fashion fabric design.

Registration and breakfast will begin from 8.30am with Lucas’ talk to commence at 9am. It’s possible for most attendees to be back at their workplace by 10am.

While Creative Talks is free to attend, registration is required.

Go to to register now.

Places are limited and filling up fast – Share with your friends so they don’t miss out!

Creative Talks is kindly hosted by The Lock-Up Cultural Centre.

Filming is generously sponsored by Enigma.

Breakfast is generously sponsored by The Newcastle Herald.
