Based in Australia, Peter Tullin is one of the leading global creative industries strategists & futurists operating today. His credentials include:

Co-Founder, REMIX Summits: an influential conference series exploring the future of the creative industries with nearly 3,000 global annual attendees. REMIX takes place in cities including London, New York, Sydney, Singapore, Istanbul and Dubai and also incorporates REMIX Academy a digital learning platform sponsored by Microsoft. Other REMIX Partners have included Bloomberg, Google, The Guardian, Etsy, Samsung, VICE, ABC and Time Out.

Co-Founder, CultureLabel.com: When it was founded in 2009, CultureLabel was the first major ecommerce site to sell art online. It officially sold art and design products from over 500 leading culture brands and artists including Tate, V&A and the Guggenheim. The CultureLabel platform also provided exclusive e-commerce services for Saatchi Gallery, ICA and 80+ other leading  galleries through a major project with the UK Government allowing customers to buy art online through staged interest free payments. It was featured in hundreds of media articles and was named by Design Week as one of the Top 50 UK influences in web design. Reviews included: “A one stop shop for creative commerce” (The Wall Street Journal); “An emporium of desirables” (Vogue); “An aggregator for the arts… One to watch” (Wired). Its success and growth saw CultureLabel raise venture capital funding and it was later sold in 2014.

Co-Founder, Four Horsemen: a creative enterprise setup to develop a major new permanent immersive experience attraction in Australia. Company founders also include the MD, Time Out & Chair, Night Time Industries Association; Co-Founder of Immersive Cinema; and the Founder of Grumpy Sailor (experience design agency with clients inc. Google Creative Lab, Punchdrunk, ACMI and the Royal Shakespeare Company).

Advisor, ArtsPay: ArtsPay is a new payment processing company with a difference. Unlike other payment processing companies, every time a customer makes a purchase using ArtsPay – either in-store or online – ArtsPay uses the payment fees of every transaction to help support the arts, via the ArtsPay Foundation. The ArtsPay Foundation is an independent, artist-led Foundation that plans to support independent artists and arts organisations across Australia with the potential to generate millions of dollars of funding for the artists and arts workers if we meet our ambitious targets.
