THE third installment of The Nut Graph‘s forum series Found in Conversation focused on Creativity and Innovation in Show Biz. It featured 8TV executive director and Media Prima chief executive officer of Alt Media Ahmad Izham Omar, independent singer-songwriter Azmyl Yunor, and actor-director Joanna Bessey.
The event was held at Leonardo’s Dining Room & Wine Loft on 8 Aug 2010. It was moderated by The Nut Graph‘s former columns and comments editor Shanon Shah, himself an award-winning singer-songwriter.
The panelists threw up interesting ideas worth pondering, not just for the arts and creative industries, but for society and politics as well. Among these issues were censorship, market segmentation and the “dumbing down” of local entertainment, and the relationship between innovation and infrastructure.
Found in Conversation aims to link personalities, ideas, and people. It tries to provide opportunities for the public to engage with notable personalities and industry experts through a one-and-a-half hour conversation.
The next forum, to be held in late September 2010, will be creativity and innovation in eco-friendly living. Look out for more information on The Nut Graph website, or follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or sign up for our e-newsletter.
