The (Hypothetical) Sector in 2030

The year is 2030. The Adelaide Festival has just announced its 26 week program of events, and an estimated 75% of the population will be performing in the Fringe. Haighs’ custom 3D printed chocolates are hugely popular and Coopers has just released their new quandong beer. But it is not all fun.​

The new "government of state unity" has called a Summit to address urgent problems confronting South Australia. This session will explore what our sector stakeholders will bring to that Summit, and what their hopes, plans and service delivery look like in 2030 and beyond.
