The first PADC Commune of 2021 ticket sales has already been a roaring success, with over 60 tickets already gone for the event. Given the high interest, they have opened ticket sales for one last chance up until noon today – but this will be the final release as seating is limited in the venue.
You can grab your tickets here at both PADC member and non-member prices.
The PADC has been able to gather a fantastic collection of voices for this informal conversation around the topic of diversity in the communications industry, communications in WA and getting regional and Aboriginal voices integrated into the worlds of commercial creativity.
