It's our big extravaganza, presenting more than 100 performances with stages and spaces embedded into the environment. 'A Day on the Foreshore' entices you to explore the beautifully landscaped Nightcliff foreshore pathways, above the coloured ochre cliffs whilst experiencing terrific Territory talent as you wander or ride along.  Bicycle Valet Parking is available, and the Tour Tub runs a free shuttle service, making it easier than ever to leave the car at home or 'park&ride'.  https://www.nightcliffseabreeze.com/the-big-day

Knowledge Intersections II: A forum for exploring the interdisciplinary and intercultural research of central Australia

Knowledge Intersections II: A forum for exploring the interdisciplinary and intercultural research of central Australia


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Dr Al Strangeways and Dr Lisa Papatraianou

Date: May 17, 2018

Time: 8:00am to 5:00pm

Contact person:  Lisa Papatraianou
T: 08 8314 4311
E: Lisa.Papatraianou@cdu.edu.au

Location:  CDU Alice Springs Campus, Alice Springs

Target audience:  This event is open for public.

This one-day research symposium is convened to showcase central Australian research and offer professional learning and networking opportunities to researchers working in central Australian contexts. It particularly welcomes participation from researchers at the beginning of their careers.

The theme of ‘Knowledge Intersections’ originated in the 2017 symposium of that name, hosted by Bachelor Institute and tied into the NT Writers’ Festival concept of ’Crossings – Iwerre-Atherre’. The language in the festival concept comes from local Arrernte people who interpreted crossings to mean two roads meeting, neither blocking nor erasing the other. Local researchers will explore the interdisciplinary and intercultural aspects of their work by responding to one of two strands- Sustainability, and Research as Research and Art as Research.

RSVP required:
