A conference is a chance to learn, share and connect, so we welcome both On-line and On-site participation. This February 2021 program is a hybrid model that aims to be responsive to a variety of presenters’ time zones through a scheduling from late morning to evening in Australia.

Online participants will enjoy:

  • Access to all pre-recorded Long Papers, Short Papers, Student Forum presentations a week before the conference. 

  • Live broadcast of Welcome, Keynotes, Regional Panels and footage of Patterning Place. You can also watch the recordings at your leisure.

  • A variety of Online Workshops during time zones that suit where you are.

  • Synchronous and asynchronous Online Thematic Discussions, where panelists clustered around mutual themes of interest co-host expansive and participatory conversations with online attendees.

  • Ways to engage and connect socially online. (See "Behind the Scenes" for what RMIT students have researched, explored and proposed – so stay tuned!)


Onsite participants will enjoy:

  • Being Welcomed to Country by Parbin-ata Carolyn Briggs AM

  • Learning through Patterning Place and a range of Onsite Workshops

  • Sustainable and healthy food experiences throughout the 4 days and the student poster exhibition

  • All online content will be accessible so you don’t miss out from participating in parallel sessions!

  • Extra curricular items include Indigenous and Australian cultural experiences.
