Create1World Moving to Electronic Conference

Kia ora koutou, because your health and safety is our top priority, we will not be proceeding with a physical gathering for Create1World this year.

However, we’ve always had a cutting-edge electronic component to the conference – and we think it is still very important and inspirational to hear from, and support, the voices of our artists at this time.

So we’re working on a plan to expand the electronic part of the conference so that you can still get access to great creative activism wisdom from wherever you are. We’ll keep you posted.

We are also still happy to accept your entries to the competition. We believe creativity is an important way to process everything that is happening. However, the electronic version that you send us will be your judged entry – there will be no live finals.

Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates: https://www.facebook.com/create1world/

Stay safe and stay creative. ❤️

“We are still raving about it.” (Teacher, Wellington)

The conference days are free to attend, and give you a feast of creative inspiration from other young people and leading artivists (that’s artists who use their creativity to generate change)!  There’s one conference at Massey Wellington, 9am – 3pm on November 15, and one at Massey Auckland, 9am – 3pm on November 22.  We provide morning tea and lunch, a goody bag, and a wealth of information and inspiration about creativity and global citizenship.

If you already know you want to come to a Create1World conference day near you – please register here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeNlSNKwVI01F44LTWZ0uiyuYKP0JsUi1EcbPZo3JH33UCvOw/viewform Registration for the Auckland event has been extended until 5pm on November 8, 2018.

You can attend a conference day without having to enter the competition – but we really hope you’ll do both! It’s great to see what ideas everyone has and share our own Kiwi young people’s creativity alongside our featured local and international artists’ stories about their successful creative journeys.

We are very grateful to New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO for supporting Create1World, including with prizes, and travel support for participants (if your school needs help with travel for students, please contact us on cre8oneworld@gmail.com to discuss – we want to see wide participation at Create1World!).

“Thank you so much for such an amazing conference today. I had little to no idea what was going to happen and it completely blew my mind how well put together it was. It was so interesting and fascinating to hear different perspectives from not only the panel internationally and domestically, but as well as from teachers/tutors within Massey University. Thank you so much once again❤️” (Student, Auckland)

 

Creative Activism for Highschool Students

Flier_Page_1Inspired by our innovative Expressive Arts curriculum and its focus on ‘performing the change you want to see’, Massey University College of Humanities & Social Sciences and the New Zealand Centre for Global Studies are proud to present #create1world, the first Creative Activism & Global Citizenship initiative in New Zealand.

This conference, competition and think-tank for senior highschool students will be held from 9am to 3pm, on July 1, 2016, at Massey University’s Wellington campus.

If you are in Year 11, 12 or 13, we invite you to first of all to enter our competition.  It aligns with NCEA for Media Studies, English, Drama and Music so we’re sure there will be a category that you can enter.

Then, come along to the conference day on July 1, and be inspired by some of the most exciting artists of our time, and hear about their work using art to cross borders, create peace, solve planetary problems and connect diverse peoples.

The day will kick off with a global linkup showcasing creative artists (celebrity musicians, painters, filmmakers, actors and more) both local and international, who are committed to creating unity and justice through their music, theatre, and media work.

Then we’ll hear from Kiwi students – the finalists in our competition will be invited to present your own creative activism work in the areas of media studies, music, creative writing and drama, and we’ll announce winners and award prizes.

Finally, join a creative brainstorm where your ideas are heard and recorded – you could really make a difference to our future and our world.
