Two Up: Talks


WHEN: 6-8pm – 31 May 2015

COST: Early bird $10

Two Up is a talk series that combines two completely unrelated topics in back to back lectures. The floor is then opened up to the audience for a fun and impulsive round of questioning, encouraging interaction between speakers and ideas.

Two Up is for inquisitive minds both young and old. It’s a bit silly and very educational. In a world of increasing specialisation Two Up creates a space where get outside of your box.

For this special Vivid Ideas edition, Two Up Talks brings you two experts from completely unrelated creative industries. This round will back up Megan Le Masurier on Slow Media and Chris Fox on Public Art.

An articulate defender of slow journalism she uses her insight and experience in the magazine industry to exalt the medium as a creative force. Interested in the potential for discovery that the digital environment offers, she looks at what it is that makes print special.

Public Art / Chris Fox
Chris Fox creates playful installations, which tease out new meanings from everyday objects and shapes. With a background in architecture he designs sculptures, displaying a keen awareness of the spaces they occupy. Operating in a number of different fields, Fox embraces the possibilities that public art allows.
