About The Event

Organisations from the government, community, health, education and corporate sectors will have the rare chance to meet with a wide array of WA’s culturally and creatively diverse talent in one special event. This is your chance to connect with skilled artists directly.

Visual artists, film makers, musicians and performing artists skilled at engaging and collaborating with communities will have 5 minutes to pitch their work and ideas to a prospective match.

New in 2020, CAN will be setting up iPad stations where regionally based artists can ‘Zoom’ into the event and connect with organisations remotely.

Light refreshments and an Event Program showcasing all participating organisations and creatives will be provided.

For more information contact Jill Brown, CAN’s Artist Development Manager, on 9226 2422 or

How will artists and organisations be matched?
After registration is closed CAN will share a list of artists and organisations attending the event with their ‘pitch’. This will give artists and organisations the opportunity to try and choose some suitable matches. CAN will do it’s best to ensure all preferred matches get a chance to communicate. If you don’t get a chance to meet your match there will be free networking after the speed dating process.
