Price $25 – $300 AUD + BF Get Tickets

Event description

Join us for a warm, lively, inclusive space of dialogue and conversation, both creative and scholarly, addressing questions of ethical encounter and exchange in creative writing and the arts across the Asia-Pacific.

The Symposium breaks from conventional academic conference formats.  It is designed for all participants to engage actively across the two-day program: talking, listening, taking our time, and sharing food to enable in-depth thinking and to forge new connections.

Featuring leading writers, poets and scholars from across the region, including Ali Cobby Eckermann (Yankunytjatjara), Dicky Senda (Mollo, West Timor), Ann Ang (Singapore), Priya Chabria (India), Conchitina Cruz (Philippines), Arpita Das (India), Marjorie Evasco (Philippines), Roanna Gonsalves (Australia), Hsu-Ming Teo (Australia), Alvin Pang (Singapore), Lily Rose Topé (Philippines), and RMIT’s Michelle Aung Thin, David Carlin, Melody Ellis, Eugenia Flynn, Michele Lee and Francesca Rendle-Short.

Funded by the Australian Government through the ARC Discovery Project Connecting Asia-Pacific Literary Cultures: Grounds for Encounter and Exchange research project (2021-24).
