Provocations-The Seven Valleys Festival of Big Ideas

Sun 7 May

Provocations-The Seven Valleys Festival of Big Ideas

Provocations—Seven Valleys Festival of BIG Ideas will enable the Lithgow community to engage with the big ideas that are shaping their future as their region transitions away from its traditional coal-based economy to a new set of opportunities.  These include eco-cultural tourism, the creative industries, renewable energy storage and transmission, and innovative circular economy businesses

Provocations—Seven Valleys Festival of BIG Ideas will be an annual event organised
by the Greater Blue Mountains Creative Arts Network (GBMCAN), which aims to
provide provocative thought leadership for the Seven Valleys (Lithgow) community
as part of the annual Seven Valleys Arts & Culture Festival.
