While it’s all well and good to hear from your favourite designers and the like in terms of their process, influences, and portfolio, we wanted to dig a little deeper. There were so many instances where we came away from the mind-bending work of a speaker and could only think ‘How the hell did they do that?’
Field Trip is going to tell you how. More than that though, it will show you. (It will also tap you gently on the shoulder, tell you you are pretty, and then maybe, if you are nice, give you free things)
A collaboration between the home-grown talent powerhouse, The Jacky Winter Group, and creative community Australian Infront, Field Trip will feature six multi-disciplinary creative professionals from The Jacky Winter Group, in a unique live format.
The bastard child of an outdoor music festival and a live cooking demonstration, each presenter will be performing a unique ‘act’ exclusive to Field Trip which will reveal the creative process from start to finish as a new work is created from the ground up, or an existing brief is laid out on the slab and dissected. Mistakes will be made, secrets revealed, and collaborations will be aplenty.
For 2013, in a Field Trip first, we will be closing the event with a panel discussion entitled ‘Mixed Business’ featuring a selection (if not all) of the presenters, moderated by your host, Jeremy Wortsman of The Jacky Winter Group, and will cover a wide variety of industry-specific and business issues facing creatives today.
Through video feeds from live cameras as well as source computers, the Audience will gain a direct insight into the tools, processes, and thoughts, of some of the most successful commercial artists working in Australia today.

ACMI, Federation Square Melbourne
Returning for a victory lap for the second year in a row at ACMI, Field Trip 2013 will surely be just as great as our event last year, minus the small amount of fuck-up’s that you hopefully didn’t notice. In other words, a potentially life changing event.
Each presenter has been carefully selected for a mix of their incredibly good-looks, presentation skills, and medium of work. Utilising some fancy audio/visual technology, you, the audience, will directly witness the creative process unfold through a series of presentations and performances, giving you direct insight into each individual’s practice. Don’t believe us? Check out the videos from last year!
Each presenter will go for approx 45 mins, followed by a brief Q&A. In a Field Trip first, we will be closing the event with a panel discussion entitled ‘Mixed Business’ featuring a selection (if not all) of the presenters, moderated by your host, Jeremy Wortsman of The Jacky Winter Group, and will cover a wide variety of industry-specific and business issues facing creatives today.
