Industry Program Engagements
Honey Pot industry delegates actively engage in our curated program of professional development sessions and panels – offering skills, knowledge, connections and collaborations. Here are some of our flagship events that industry can take part in:
Creative Surgeries – Industry experts spend a session creatively advising and supporting artists and projects. Up to 6 artists take part in a roundtable discussion. The Creative Surgeon’s professional expertise and interest is recorded during registrations. Designed for artists embarking on new projects, or just developing the one they have.
HIVE – Speed-dating style conversations held weekly! ‘Ready to Go’ Honey Pot artists are invited to take part in the HIVE. Visiting Industry delegates host their own table and take rotating short conversations. Make a new acquaintance and learn more about each other…and who knows what the outcomes may be!
HoneyComb – An information sharing and networking session - places key organisations, regional presenters or genre defined programmers in the room with artists looking to hear more about works and artists they present to their audiences.
- Panels – Have an idea for an industry panel? Want to curate a panel of expert speakers who can talk to an area of the arts? Honey Pot encourages expressions of interest. The marketplace team will be on hand to help coordinate and schedule.
