Desire and Destination open for registration


The Arts Activated Conference: Desire and Destination, is open for registrations. Taking place on 30 and 31 October 2012, Arts Activated brings together national and international leaders, artists and arts workers with and without disability, presenting to the broader Arts & Disability sector Australia-wide.

This unique two-day event will be held at Sydney's newest fully accessible arts centre, The Concourse in Chatswood. Keynote speakers, Associate Professor Petra Kuppers from the University of Michigan USA and Alfred Deakin Professor of Australian Studies, David Walker from Deakin University VIC, join a range of presentations, plenary and break-out sessions.

A social and cultural program runs concurrently, including the Walsh Bay Arts Table 2012 with guest speaker Robyn Archer, Creative Director of the Centenary of Canberra (2013) and the new Deputy Chair for the Australia Council for the Arts.

“There is a growing desire for a stronger arts and disability culture in Australia, as well as a deeper understanding of the value of participation in the Arts by people with disability. We hope you will join us to strengthen arts and disability in Australia,” said Conference Convener Amanda Tink.
