As the founding director and curator of the wildly successful Vivid Ideas – an annual event in Sydney that brings together local and international creative practitioners and businesses, spanning industries from art and architecture to gaming and filmmaking – Jess Scully has cemented her place as one of the countries leading creative thinkers.

With her passion to use creativity to inspire social change, spark conversation and explore opportunities for the arts, the Australian Design Centre believes Jess’ outstanding contribution to the city of Sydney not only brightens its façade, but adds value to the broader economy too.
