Floods Support, Community and Summit Update

Some of you may not know but the majority of our team and founders are based in the NSW Northern Rivers, it is our home and place of work. We also have team members based in SE Queensland. We are all OK, but our friends, families and the communities around us are hurting.

Our hearts are breaking as we witness the devastation of the floods. We know members of our creative community are directly impacted and we will continue to update everyone on how you can provide much-needed support to them at this time.

An update on the Creative Business Summit.

As the floods disaster and recovery continues in Northern New South Wales and SE Queensland, it is with heavy hearts that we have made the decision to postpone the Creative Business Summit event in Brisbane.

There is a long road to recovery for these regions – our home too – and we know countless small creative businesses have been impacted, with many more pitching in to help their neighbours and surrounding communities.

We have secured a new date with the Old Museum venue and will now host the event on Thursday 2 June, 2022. We cannot wait to celebrate courage in small business with you all.

In the meantime, please reach out to us if you have been affected and need support. We are here for you and will do what we can to help with the recovery efforts.

We have now made the decision to host it as a non-profit event with 10% of ticket sales going towards disaster relief for South East QLD and Northern NSW communities.

Updated Summit ticketing:

All tickets NOW $175 (+$4 bf)
OR Pre-order Digital tickets $55
For our amazing existing Early-bird ticket holders, we will price match and refund the ticket difference. Our team will be in touch.

Community Support:
Are you, or do you know a creative small business that has been directly affected by the floods? Over the next few weeks, we’ll be shouting out businesses that need support to rebuild and get back on track. Nominate them here.

Please stay safe everyone.

Love, Sarah, Brooke and Team FK
