Important update June 1, 2024: We’ve decided to put CreateWorld on hold until later in the year. We’ll post details of new dates for the event here as soon as we have them. We’ll be opening another CFP shortly – please check back here soon.

We’re thrilled to announce that CreateWorld is finally back after a 5-year hiatus! CreateWorld 2024 will be held at Griffith University’s Meeanjin/Brisbane South Bank campus June 26-28, 2024 later in 2024.

CreateWorld is a 2-3 day performance, presentation, and professional development event, specifically for academic, teachers, and technical staff who use Apple technology in the education and digital arts disciplines.

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

Learn more about this event in the Call for Participation – submissions are now open!


CreateWorld is aimed at teachers, practitioners, academics, research teams, technical staff and students who use Apple technology in education and across the digital arts.

Sesssions can 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.

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

The AUC acknowledges the Yugarabul, Yuggera, Jagera and Turrbal peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands on which CreateWorld will be held, and we pay our respect to the Elders, past and present, and we extend that respect to all other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
