Owning Racism: Can we Talk?
Thursday August 23 and Friday August 24
East Wing Gallery
The two-day Symposium Owning Racism: Can we talk? A symposium for academics, service providers and arts practitioners is the first major initiative to emerge from our Identity: yours, mine, ours exhibition which was launched last year.
A community of practitioners and academics have been invited to speak to their research, program work, service delivery or study around themes exploring cultural and social intervention in order to facilitate social cohesion. Examples of research and/or practical applications in youth engagement, CALD connections, multicultural and cross-cultural exchange, refugee and asylum support services will be explored.
Specific Symposium aims include:
– Share methodologies across disciplines in areas of social intervention, anti-racism projects, applied theory in community practice;
– Highlight key research in the related fields;
– Provide practical examples of project work and case study evaluations;
– Showcase best practice by museums, schools, universities, local governments, arts, non-government organisations, etc;
– Encourage active and ongoing networks and collaborative partnerships
