Had the wonderful privilege to spend a whole day with a dynamic group of artists and Diversity in Arts advocates at Stories from the Future workshop in January at Parramatta Artists Studios in NSW! It was inspiring to spend time imagining a more equitable culturally diverse creative sector. Diversity Arts Australia are doing wonderful work in this sector.
