Vivid Creative Sydney is all lined up for another year of spreading creative energy and inspiring the city. Presented as part of the Vivid Festival, Creative Sydney will see over 50 global and local creative leaders coming together to explore the power of creative industries to transform society.

This year Creative Sydney is expanding to include more free sessions and for the first time a presence at the Sydney Opera House, as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art. The program includes short and snappy show and tell presentations, in depth conversation sessions on education, innovation and technology, and creative futures, where artists and entrepreneurs present their vision of the ideas that will shape society in the future. As well as an awesome line-up of speakers, there will also be a range of live music showcases, debates, film screenings, parties and social events.

Key speakers include Matthew Stinchcomb, EU director of Etsy, and will mark Etsy's first official engagement with their third largest market, and Fabian Rigall, founder of Future Shorts and Secret Cinema. Also lined up are Murray Bell and Andrew Johnstone, the founders of the internationally successful Semi-Permanent conferences, swimwear brand We Are Handsome and Ben Briand, winner of the Cannes Young Director Award and Best Narrative Video at the 2010 Vimeo Awards. And that's only the beginning.

Update: Whilst most sessions have now sold out, some more tickets to Creative Futures sessions will be available from 9am on Friday, May 27 via the Creative Sydney website.
