AUC CreateWorld Conference
In 1984 when the Apple Macintosh computer was first released, Apple entered into a partnership with nine Australian universities to form the Apple University Consortium (Australasia).
In 2011, 2014 and 2015, the annual Create World conference–a 3 day performance, presentation, and professional development event, specifically for academic and higher-education technical staff in the digital arts disciplines–was held at Griffith University’s South Bank campus, home to the Queensland College of Art and Griffith Film School.
Previous CreateWorld conferences
Previous CreateWorld conferences have featured a wide range of academic and technical presenters from the University and industry sectors as well as hands-on technical workshops. There is an emphasis on high profile keynotes, popular panel sessions, and interesting performances.
Sessions included presentations on teaching and learning, new media work, performance, techniques and approaches in practice-led research fields including photography, cyber-arts, music, e-learning, film, animation, design and software development.
The keynote speaker for 2015 was Cat Hope, musician and co-author of the recently published book Digital Art – An Introduction to New Media, which explores the idea of digital art as part of the ongoing continuum of technology that artists have been fascinated with throughout history.
