CURVY is a platform for creative women to connect, share and learn with each other.
Now in it’s eleventh year, the event is an annual showcase of tenacious, boundary-breaking women who are leading the world’s most progressive industries.
So much of the vision and spectacle upon which these industries turn is cultivated by women, whose passion for media, business, creativity, technology, community and breakthrough ideas is what drives their work, and inspires ours.
We see evidence of their innovation every day, but so rarely do these women clamour for the limelight that an opportunity to hear them speak with the authority they have earned is a precious one. By sharing their skills and knowledge they encourage other creative women to unlock their own strengths, talents and capacity to influence change.
Build your network and connect with some of the most creative women in Australia.
Be inspired by 18 boundary-breaking speakers and their passion for creative success.
Gain practical tips and tools to take your creative career or business to the next level.
Find new mentors and women to share your knowledge and experience with.
For anyone looking to build or amplify a successful creative business or rewarding creative career, you do not want to miss this.
Each year CURVY presents a series of talks, workshops, awards, exhibitions, launches & events, and presents the latest CURVY book and magazine. The forum showcases ideas, tips and insights that give attendees a female perspective of the future trends breaking boundaries in progressive, creative industries at home and abroad.
Featured talent joins the CURVY alumni, an international collective in its thousands. Around these, CURVY cultivates an inspired community – creative, professional women, upwardly mobile and future-focused. The latest generation of outstanding female talent and vision.
