ACEI2018 aims to provide a forum for discussion on a range of issues impacting the arts and culture and for the first time the conference will also address issues related to sport. The conference brings together a range of academics from a number of disciplines that share an interest in empirically motivated research on topics related to the arts and culture such as creative industries, creative cities, art markets and artistic labour to name a few. The conference also welcomes the insights and contributions from professionals, arts practitioners, policy makers and arts administrators in developing a fruitful dialogue that connects theory with practice.

With the conference host, RMIT based in the Melbourne CBD, the location of ACEI2018 combined with the social and cultural programme that accompany the conference, will provide delegates an ideal opportunity to experience Australian culture and explore the city of Melbourne.
