Despite extended adversity, we have discovered new ways of working, relating, and finding a meaningful existence. This was only possible because of creative thinking. Minds pushing past conventional boundaries and being open to new possibilities.

Virginia Keft knows all about this as a Murriwarri woman, artist, performer, and researcher. She has been enriching people’s lives with culture and connection using the power of movement, art and creativity for the last two decades.

We invite you to join Dr Virginia Keft as she shares her journey and explores how creativity can make powerful change. This vibrant gathering will also feature live entertainment, music and mini exhibitions of local student work.
