Cultures and Practices of Belonging Symposium

Cultures and Practices of Belonging

In many dimensions of contemporary culture(s), it is becoming increasingly apparent how challenges of boundaries, their permeability and obduracy offer both great challenges and promising opportunities. Cultures and Practices of Belonging aims to explore some of those opportunities via cross-disciplinary dialogues and collaborations, with emphasis on experiential processes, starting with a one day symposium, with presentations by Dr Sergio Fava and Dr Michael Hrebeniak.

Bridging the arts, science, humanities, NGOs, and policy-making, Belonging has the potential to bring together different methodologies to think creatively about themes such as common ownership, ecology, identity, and community, in a future-oriented yet grounded manner. 

Through workshops, talks, and discussions, the event will create a space for dialogues across disciplines, and foster a network of creative collaborations. The Symposium will start at 9.30 prompt (registration from 9am).

Refreshments will be provided at 4pm with an opportunity to register any interests in pursuing collaborative dialogue or research beyond the Symposium.
