Celebrating the 'art in everyday' at Festival of Ambitious Ideas

At the Festival of Ambitious Ideas: The Art in Everyday on May 31st, speakers from a range of industries and sectors will come together to inspire the audience to see the 'art in everyday'.

The event is a collaboration between local innovation consultancy, Lighthouse Business Innovation Centre, and the Canberra Airport. It is designed to be fast-paced and informal, following the Ignite format where speakers each only have 5 minutes to tell their story and 'ignite' the audience.

Lighthouse CEO Anna Pino says, "The Festival of Ambitious Ideas highlights some of the inventive businesses, projects and initiatives occurring right here in Canberra."

"From multimedia and video production, architecture and city planning, industrial design, food, lifestyle, photography and art; speakers will discuss both their ideas and some of their challenges."

"Art and design have a profound impact on our everyday lives from the design of our cities and the architecture of our homes to the functionality of our furniture and even the food we eat and entertainment we engage with."

"Design is more than just what something looks like; it influences how we think, how we feel, how we make decisions and how we interact with one another," says Ms Pino.

"We are looking forward to hearing from this talented group of artists about their projects, inspirations and successes," says Stephen Byron, Managing Director of Capital Airport Group.

"We are passionate about art in design. It's central to all our businesses. Art enriches everyone's experience, helps create lasting positive memories and contributes to a higher level of happiness."

  • Dorte Ekelund, SMEC
