About CreateWorld

CreateWorld is our 2 day performance, presentation, and professional development event, specifically for academic and technical staff who work in the digital arts disciplines.

The conference features a wide range of academic and technical presenters from the tertiary education and industry sectors, and includes several keynotes, panel sessions, hypotheticals, hands-on technical workshops, and regular presentation sessions.


Create World is aimed specifically at practitioners, academics, research teams, technical staff and students across the digital arts.

Sesssions include presentations on teaching and learning, new media work, performance, techniques and approaches in practice-led research fields including photography, cyber-arts, music, e-learning, film, animation and design.

Create World is different to most academic conferences. Probably the best way to find out how is to listen to “The Three Professors” discuss Create World 2008!

CreateWorld 2014

Create World 2014 will again be held at Griffith University’s Brisbane South Bank campus, and is scheduled for 12-13 February 2014 (please note this is a date change from earlier announcements).
