NOVEMBER 11, 12, 13


In light of on-going developments with COVID-19 and after thoughtful discussions with our committees, ICCP has decided to move our 8th International Conference of Community Psychology to a fully online, virtual experience that will take place on Wednesday 11 – 13 November 2020. We believe this is the safest approach for the well-being of our global audience and we are excited that a virtual event makes it possible to broaden the learning opportunities and engagement with the industry at this time. 


Attendees will be able to participate virtually in vital conversations around celebrating and interrogating the ways solidarities are fostered and sustained within community contexts, across borders and boundaries, digital and non-digital spaces, and through process of knowledge production. The conference seeks to give a critical platform to the ideas and work emerging from coalitions with practitioners, artists, educators, activists, and diverse communities. We are interested in exploring and showcasing scholarship, activism, practice, and critical scholarly engagement, from around the world that seeks to bring about sustainability, inclusivity, and wellbeing for all.


Networking is a cornerstone of our biennial event and attendees will be able to partake in interactive and engaging experiences through a new dynamic virtual conference platform — OnAIR

The virtual system we will use also has interactive exhibition features and includes opportunities for sponsorship exposure, all while attendees connect from the comfort and safety of their home or office. 



The conference agenda will now be spread over three days in morning and evening segments to accommodate varied time zones8am – 12:30pm AEDT (UTC +10) and 7pm – 9pm AEDT (UTC +10)

The Western suburbs of Melbourne have distinctive cultural, economic, and socio-political histories, weaved from successive waves of migration. These histories are continually transformed through various processes related to globalisation, migration, and dynamics of community and place making. Often celebrated for its cultural diversity, the location is also marked by high levels of inequality that are exacerbated by processes of de-industrialisation, urban renewal and gentrification. We are attendance to consequences for the health and wellbeing of differently positioned and its attendant consequences for the health and wellbeing for differently positioned communities of people. Within this context, with such complex and diverse social and cultural history, there can be found extraordinary examples of creativity, communality, survival and solidarity.

Footscray is known for its diverse and vibrant history this multicultural hub reflects and has been home to successive waves of migrants from Greeks, Italians, and former Yugoslavians, to Vietnamese and East Africans. Head down Barkly St for some of the best Pho and Bahn Mi in Melbourne, and finish it off with coffee and canoli, otherwise head down Nicholson St Mall to sample Ethiopian Injera bread or succulent kebab. Nestled on the Maribyrnong river is the Footscray Community Arts Centre, a community-engaged contemporary arts space that hosts theatre, galleries and workshops and contributes to Footscray reputation for a thriving local arts scene.

Visit one of Footscray’s many bars for a wine or a cocktail, see some live music at the Reverence Hotel or head to Hop Nation for a locally brewed beer. No visit is complete without a trip to the Footscray Market, where you can explore the fresh produce whilst sipping on Café Sua Da (Vietnamese Iced Coffee).




When thousands and even millions of people experience essentially identical problems, defining these problems as ‘individual’ oversimplifies to the point of absurdity
