Keynotes, Workshops & Mentorship

We enjoy sharing our work and learning more about yours. We are able to translate our experience into many disciplinary frameworks, with keynotes and workshops on a wide range of topics.

Keynotes, Workshops & Mentorship


Gap Filler’s work has applications across man y fields and disciplines. We are used to adapting the work we do to a range of audiences and formats. We have worked in  the following fields: Architecture, Art, Collaboration, Creative Process, Design, Education, Engineering, Landscape Architecture, Leadership, Public Health, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Philosophy, Placemaking, Planning, Political Science, Resource Management, Sociology, Sociometry, Performing Arts and more. 

We have given keynotes in eight countries, and are skilled at adapting the language and presentation to suit academic, corporate, community, government or other contexts. We run placemaking workshops for and with local governments, development agencies, community groups and business associations. We mentor community groups, artists and startup placemaking groups (both government-led and independent).

Got an idea for a conference, workshop, short-course, staff training day? Get in touch and discuss how we could approach it together.

Case Study: Sunshine Coast Place2Play

Sunshine Coast Council initiated a new creative placemaking programme with a project called Place2Play. They selected a dozen artists to deliver public placemaking works in the town of Caloundra, many of whom had never previously worked in the public realm or with communities. Gap Filler ran an initial (online) 4-hour workshop with the artists, and had one-on-one follow up sessions with each artist throughout the development process.

“Thank you again for today’s session. It was relevant, thoughtful, generous and insightful. The crew of artists are inspired, challenged, asking new questions and keen to explore what this project brings! We are very grateful. A great point on the continuum…. thanks again.”
