AFTER THE APOLOGY...
Saturday 5 May

2018 marks the 10th anniversary of Kevin Rudd’s national apology to members of the Stolen Generations. However, removal of Indigenous children from their families as well as the overrepresentation of Indigenous adult and youth incarceration in Australia have continued to increase since. This panel will discuss how processes of reparative and abolitionist justice are being imagined in visual culture, film, and art for the ongoing struggle toward self-determination and liberation.

Speakers
Charlotte Allingham, Richard Frankland, Mark McMillan

WHERE TO FROM #METOO?
Saturday 6 May

In the wake of the #MeToo social media campaign and revived discussions on feminism, where does this leave gender equality in Australia today? How do we now strategically mobilise beyond online discussions to build sustainable movements and alternative institutions? This panel will discuss the intersections of violence enacted on feminine and femme bodies and how women can locate and embed agency in community, in work, and in love.

RESISTANCE ON THE GROUND, RESILIENCE IN THE EARTH: CLIMATE CHANGE ACTIVISM IN THE ASIA PACIFIC
Saturday 12 May

Climate change is one of the most pressing concerns of our times for nations and communities globally. For many Indigenous communities around the world, climate change is a condition and continuation of colonisation. Throughout the Asia Pacific, people have been mobilising against the effects of climate change by tackling ecological issues such as rising sea levels, food security and extreme weather changes. In this panel, speakers will consider the successes and failures of recent grassroots movements, and how Indigenous knowledges shape the decolonial responses and actions taken in preserving the land on which we live.

Speakers
Tony Birch, 350 Pacific, Latai Taumoepeau, Karrina Nolan

THRESHOLDS OF VISIBILITY: ON REPRESENTING REFUGEE EXPERIENCES

Saturday 13 May

Since the 2017 protests against the Australian Government’s policies on detention in Manus and Nauru, the refugee plight has swelled in visibility through modes of prominent media dissemination and cultural production. These images come with an increase of art, film, and writing on refugee experiences. This panel will discuss who is doing the representing, who benefits, and whose resistance is made invisible.
