OK Democracy, We Need to Talk: A symposium about power, the visual image and media access.

 To coincide with the closing weekend of our current exhibition, OK Democracy, We Need to Talk Campbelltown Arts Centre is hosting a symposium co-programmed with UNSW Art & Design lecturer, Simon Hunt (A.K.A Pauline Pantsdown).

Reflecting on the current state of democracy in Australia and across the globe, the symposium will focus on the ability to speak and to be heard, questioning how the visual image and media tools are utilised as a means to access power.

The symposium will  include guest keynotes, two panels featuring: Simon Hunt, Cathy Wilcox, Patrick Morrow, Sabella D’Souza, JD Reforma, Safdar Ahmed and Deborah Kelly with more names to be announced and free artist led workshop activities.

Democracy sausages will be available for a gold-coin donation, with all proceeds going to Dharawal Men’s Aboriginal Corporation.

The full program will be announced soon.
