ENCOUNTERING

Encountering: An Aboriginal cultural and knowledge space

Artistic Directors: Dr Karen Martin, Mr Anthony Semann, Bernadette Dunn  

 

As part of the INSPIRE 2023 Conference: Fantasy, Reality, Opportunity we are pleased to invite you to Encountering: An Aboriginal cultural and knowledge space.

The concept of encountering is an open invitation to come into space, to dialogue, to dream alongside. It suggests that we can transform self and others when we meet and share. We enter as individuals; we exit as a collective. Encountering: An Aboriginal cultural and knowledge space brings together artists, performers, activists and thinkers. This cultural and knowledge space operates over two days with a range of encounters for you to experience and immerse yourself in. We recall the power of pentimento; that is, when we pause and consider, we can see the tracings of the past in order to inform and influence the future.

Engagement with this space is included in your conference registration fee – more details about Encountering: An Aboriginal cultural and knowledge space and how to register coming soon!
