MTN Bushfire 2017 calls all local arts industry stakeholders to apply to be part of this year’s Arts Round Table programme scheduled for the 26th of May 2017.
The festival’s Arts Round Table provides a much-needed annual forum for knowledge and skills share with leading industry professionals while fostering exchange and regional networking opportunities. Hosted at Malkerns Country Club, this year’s Arts Round Table will be focused on branding and brand sustainability.

Topics to be covered will include Brand Development, Brand Maintenance, Social Media Presence & Marketing Platforms, Marketing & Brand Desirability, and Professionalism. There will be various speakers/panellists who are experts in the different relevant fields present on the day to share advice and engage with participants.
Arts Round Table also forms part of MTN Bushfire’s annual Live Online Dialogue and the #GreenYourFire campaign in the lead-up to this year’s festival, and discussions during the day will be continued online via Twitter using the hashtag #GreenYourFire. MTN Bushfire 2017 Arts Round Table promises to be an exciting and worthwhile experience for artists that are ready to invest in themselves and build a strong foundation for a sustainable platform.
