Renew Newcastle is pleased to announce that Creative Talks returns in 2014 with the first lecture by local artist, Trevor Dickinson on Friday 5 September.
We are also very proud to announce our continuing partnership with newly re-launched The Lock-Up as well as Enigma and The Newcastle Herald without whom Creative Talks would not be possible.
Originally from England, Trevor Dickinson trained as a printed textile designer in London and has worked with clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, Disney and Adidas. He has also written and illustrated three children’s books and painted a number of large murals in his adopted hometown of Newcastle Australia.
Trevor moved to Australia in 2002, and seven years later decided to go out to draw his environment. These drawings formed the basis for his Newcastle Productions project, in which he makes prints, zines, tea towels and cards as a way of spreading his vision of Australia.
Since then, Trevor has added Canberra and Sydney to his body of work and continues to travel around Australia searching for more icons of day to day life.

ABOUT CREATIVE TALKS
Renew Newcastle presents Creative Talks, a series of breakfast lectures by people who are making a living from their creativity. Taking place on a Friday morning each month for three months (beginning July 2013) a well-regarded creative will be invited to speak for 30 minutes about the lessons they have learned growing their art into a commercial success.
This will be followed by an audience Q&A and the opportunity to mingle with local creatives from a wide range of backgrounds. Attendance is free and breakfast (coffee, tea, pastries and fruit) is provided.
Meet, greet and eat at Creative Talks.
