Call for creators, innovators, speakers, performers and storytellers
Calling all creators and innovators: Will you be a part of WLG-X?
From the experimental to the extraordinary, we're on the lookout for people with a story to tell or an experience to share.
We're looking for speakers, performers and storytellers in the areas of tech, design, film and music and "the X" - the collaborations and ideas that bridge these creative industries.
You can present solo, create a panel, host a workshop, or hold a fireside chat or propose a bold new format. We’re after an eclectic mix of formats, topics, and people – these examples are just a starter for the kinds of applications we’re looking for. You’ll find a much longer list of topics in the application form, as well as an opportunity to add your own.
It could be anything from a talk on how AI is influencing electronic music, to running a workshop about the fundamentals of coding, to live podcasting a discussion on the future of New Zealand's visual identity.
Presenters will join a line up that includes a growing list of international talent.
The opportunities are endless!
