Program

Saturday 14 July

Panel,

Future of media

2pm - 2.50pm | Saturday 14 July

Given the 24/7 news cycle and even faster social media platforms, how can we control information? Is this development the ultimate democratisation of what used to be strictly-controlled offerings of the powerful few? Who’s making sure we’re not being duped?

Panel,

Housing 3.0

2pm - 2.50pm | Saturday 14 July

Could there ever be such a thing as citizen-led housing? What would that mean for cities? Would we become the developers, the builders, the landlords as well as the tenants? Could we develop truly inclusive models of collaborative governance in group housing, and will this be the way of the future?

Panel,

Second-hand Rose: living in the land of borrowed identity crisis

2pm - 2.50pm | Saturday 14 July

National identity is a peculiarly post-colonial obsession. We want to be different and seem so to the world. Yet our terminology is largely second hand, shaped by the junk language of managerialism, government whim or academic fashion. Will Australians ever use our own words to describe our own conditions?

Workshop,

What privilege?

2pm - 2.50pm | Saturday 14 July

What privilege? uses question-thinking and play (based on 50 cheeky power character cards and hilarious supremacy scenarios) for participants to check our privileged mindsets, as a transformative process – beyond guilt and blame, so we can collectively develop negotiation skills to notice, disrupt and reframe our shared terms of engagement.

Solo event,

Does the centre left have a future?

2pm - 2.50pm | Saturday 14 July

Across the globe, the centre left is on the back foot, losing elections by record margins. Recent elections in the US, Italy, Spain, France, Germany and the UK all saw the main social democratic or labour party out of office. Why is the left losing, and can it win again?

Solo event,

Forget me not

2pm - 2.50pm | Saturday 14 July

Intergenerational dementia programs purposefully bring young people and people living with dementia together, for mutually beneficial interventions. Learn what happened when, over eight weeks, Ashleigh conducted lessons about dementia with year 4/5 students at Unley Primary School followed by six excursions to an aged care day respite facility.
