Frequently asked questions
Will indigenous work and voices be a part of the conference?
Most definitely! One of our main partners in the conference is Moondani Balluk the indigenous academic unit at Victoria University. Moondani Balluk means ‘embrace people’ in the language of the Wurundjeri people who first lived in the western region of Melbourne. Moondani Balluk works across Aboriginal, non-governmental organisation and community spaces. Find out more about their work here
Is the conference only for academics?
No, definitely not. We are working hard to put together a program of themes, speakers, workshops and spaces that are both inclusive and transdisciplinary. We hope students, practitioners, educators, researchers, psychologists, academics and the general public will be involved.
Will it be expensive?
We acknowledge that international travel is very expensive and so are doing everything we can to keep conference costs to a minimum whilst still providing a meaningful and engaging experience. Our main goal is to enure you can afford to attend so we are being creative and careful in our planning. We are hoping to establish some travel and scholarship funds for students. Although we are still working of the details of registration fees, it will be tiered to account for people in developing countries, and of course for students and other non-waged people. We will also keep you updated of any discounts available for travel through our conference partner Melbourne Convention Bureau.
