Field Trip! A new creative conference from The Jacky Winter Group and Australian INfront. Amazing website illustration / design by Beci Orpin.
So I am a little behind with this news but I thought I’d save it ’til after Kids Week, in some vague attempt at editorial discipline…
Now we all know about The Jacky Winter Group, Melbourne-based illustration agency extraordinaire, founded and managed by expert Melbourne creative entrepreneur Jeremy Wortsman. Mr Wortsman is endlessly dreaming up genius new creative business ideas – here’s another to add to the list!
Field Trip is a creative conference like no other. Featuring ten revered Australian creatives from various disciplines including Beci Orpin, Jeremy Ley and Tin&Ed, Field Trip is a unique event in which the talented peeps listed here will perform a live ‘act’ which explores the creative process from start to finish. This means no powerpoint presentations, no yawn worthy slide shows… instead, creatives briefs will be dissected and new work created in real time in front of a live audience! Amaze.
We thought this was such a genius idea, we decided to ask Jeremy a few questions about the concept –
JW, you are already a very busy man – what inspired you to start Field Trip?
Will it be annual ?

The inaugural Field Trip will take place Friday, April 20 at ACMI in Melbourne, with another scheduled in Sydney in November. If you’re into snooping at other people’s creative process, you should totally go. I am ;)
With under two weeks until the Melbourne event, tickets are selling like hotcakes – they’re $99.00 for regular admission, and can be purchased here.
