Creative Business Summit Wrap-Up 2022

It’s been a big month of wrap-ups here at FK, and we’re delighted to share another one to wrap up our first-ever Creative Business Summit! The summit was held on the 2nd of June at the Old Museum, Brisbane, and the weather turned it on for an incredible day of inspiration, connection and courage from all those who spoke and attended.

If you couldn’t make it to the Creative Business Summit in person, don’t worry – we filmed it! Grab an online ticket for only $65 and watch the summit anywhere in the world – from your office, on the treadmill or even rugged up on the couch with a cup of tea. Watch the Summit online.

The full photo album from the day is LIVE over on our Facebook page, captured by photographer Nat McComas. Tag yourself, comment, share, like and most importantly, ENJOY! Check out the photo album.

We couldn’t have pulled this event off without the help of many amazing and kind people and wanted to kick off the thank you’s by saying THANK YOU to everyone who bought a ticket, shared the event and helped bring it to life. The Summit was originally planned to be held in March, but due to the floods, it was postponed. We then decided to make it a non-profit event and will be donating 10% of all ticket sales to Arts Northern Rivers to help rebuild small creative businesses in Northern NSW. Without the support of our creative community, we wouldn’t have been able to make this happen! So, Thank you!
