The theme for this year’s Arts Activated Conference in Sydney is ‘Desire and Destination’. I have been invited by Accessible Arts NSW to attend the conference as one of the facilitators of the 2-day program where I will introduce panels of speakers throughout the conference, provide audio description of dance performances to visually impaired and blind audiences and provide other access support. I will also act as a kind of ‘delegate liaison’ making smooth and effortless introductions to one another and provide general support to the conference convener, Amanda Tink.
Desire and Destination
30 – 31 October 2012
The Concourse, Sydney 409 Victoria Avenue Chatswood NSW
The third Arts Activated Conference presents two full days of presentations, plenary sessions and break-out sessions, performance, social and cultural programs and the Walsh Bay Arts Table 2012. This is an exciting opportunity for artists and arts workers to network, connect and share with the Arts and Disability sectors from across Australia and around the world.
The Key Note Speakers for this event are Dr. Petra Kuppers, Associate Professor of English, Theater and Dance, and Women’s Studies University of Michigan, USA who will present on the first day and David Walker, Alfred Deakin Professor of Australian Studies at Deakin University, Melbourne who will address the delegation on the second.
