Field Trip (2021): Sunshine Coast AU
Art Science Collaborations
Keynote: Sarah Jane Pell. Chair: Leah Barclay
Field Trip is an international research symposium investigating creative practice at the intersection of art, science, technology and the environment. We would like to acknowledge Jinibara and Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubbi the traditional owners of the unceded lands on which the Field Trip Symposium is taking place. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future. The hybrid 'live and digital' symposium will explore the ethics of interdisciplinary art and will illuminate how vital creativity is in responding to the climate crisis and reimagining our future. The event features some of Australia’s leading artists, designers and academics and includes keynote presentations, panels, interactive artworks and participatory experiences that explore the possibilities of presenting ecologically engaged creative work in virtual environments. Field Trip brings together First Nations knowledge systems, creativity, new technologies and interdisciplinary thinking to confront our past, present and possible futures.
