The Visual Arts and Design Educators Association of NSW Conference – 2023

It was my delight to present a keynote as well as a workshop at the 2023 Visual Arts and Design Educators Association (VADEA) of NSW Conference.

The VADEA seeks to promote the study of Visual Arts and Design education and to inspire and support Visual Art and Design teachers. During my keynote address titled “Creativity for All – Preparing for Student Success,” I emphasised the importance of creativity in achieving success based on research conducted by the World Economic Forum over the years. According to their findings, creativity has consistently ranked among the top 5 skills necessary to thrive in the future, since 2016.

I also ran a workshop titled – Art Technology Workshop and went through various tips and tricks with Photoshop as well as how to create a digital portfolio with Adobe Express.

I would like to thank the VADEA Conference Committee for inviting me to their conference this year. It was a pleasure to spend time with some very creative educators.
