Panel,

When a stranger calls

10.30am - 11.20am | Saturday 14 July

There are plenty among us who fear the notion of welcoming a stranger, an asylum seeker or a refugee. But after decades of immigration, how do we know who is from here and who is not? And does simply being born an Australian truly make you one?

Panel,

The art of redemption

11.30am - 12.20pm|10.30am - 11am | Saturday 14 July

Does art-making have the potential to make the process of change visible to others – whether through dealing with mental health issues, or developing activities that can help prisoners to cope? Can art be a way to create a positive dialogue characterised by gratitude, support, encouragement and mutual learning?

Panel,

Big Change? The place of place

10.30am - 11.20am | Saturday 14 July

What does it take to make ‘big change’ happen? TACSI have been giving ‘big change’ a red hot go in Australia –  to reduce unemployment, to give kids a great start, to reduce recidivism,  to address Aboriginal over representation in the justice system, to build economic futures for towns and to rethink how we live as we age.

Solo event,

In our own image: artificial intelligence and the humans who shape it

10.30am - 11.20am | Saturday 14 July

AI systems play an increasing role in our lives: deciding what jobs we do, our insurance options, our interactions with government services. What do we pass on to the AI we create? What biases and beliefs influence the way AI systems 'think'? How do we build ethical, responsible AI?

Solo event,

Let’s normalise the nap!

10.30am - 11.20am | Saturday 14 July

At a time when we've never been more over-stimulated, under-slept and chronically tired, you could argue we've never been more in need of the power nap. Join Naptivist Thea O’Connor as we delve into the science of napping, explore the social proof and consider 'next steps' for making the power nap the new coffee break.

Workshop,

Powerful conversations – GetUp!

10.30am - 12.30pm | Saturday 14 July

One-to-one conversations are the backbone of a successful campaign – whether that’s through door knocking, stalls, phone calls, or with family and friends. In this workshop you will be introduced to a framework for persuasive conversations that’ll help you engage with people’s values and concerns, shift their thinking and move them to action.
