SouthStart (2018) Adelaide, AU
Start Arts in Space
Opportunities for South Australia in Space
Sarah Jane Pell
In the words of the organisers _southstart is an intimate gathering of innovators, disruptors, creators and technologists forging a future with exponential technology to create impact and purpose. We explore the exponential technologies which are shaping our future - AR/VR/IoT/ML/AI/Space and more. Shining lights, through intelligent minds, onto the opportunities and challenges this will create for society 5.0. _southstart is not a conference. It is a convergence of people, ideas and technology. Bending the present bounds of the universe to form a future unknown. A human-first social experience, driven by ideas and possibility, shared intimately and interactively over a festival program of workshops, keynotes, panels, dinners and more. Entrepreneurs, investors, innovators, technologists, students, aspiring start-up founders and the next generation of leaders attend _southstart to learn, connect and share ideas tasked from a world beyond our experience.

Dr. Sarah Jane Pell attempts to reach this audience in two ways: firstly putting forward the business case to dismiss the misconceptions of a parasitic or irrelevant arts in space notion to highlight the Australian Space Industry is less than 8% of the global space economy while the creative capital of Australia alone is 26% of the global space economy (so now imagine the value of the global creative economy). Secondly, Pell takes the audience on an immersive art experience through projection mapping data visualisation and extreme, etheral and surreal space art performances across the beautiful Adelaide Town Hall to inspire and ignite their imaginations and wonder.
