Event Details


Curated by Esther Anatolitis and in partnership with Media Architecture Institute and Federation Square, come and join an all-day symposium investigating how technologies are redefining community engagement and the creation of public space.


Sometimes called digital placemaking or open-source placemaking, new approaches to public space focus on the layers of connection and cultural experience that are introduced by media technologies.


Presented by Fed Square and Pause Fest and produced by UTV, Digital Publics brings timely voices together from the creative practices, institutions and research projects that work in an evolving field of public engagement, urban screens and placemaking in the digital age.


In a forum held at one of the world’s most iconic public spaces, Fed Square, each of the speakers will share insights on how digital innovations are bringing communities together and shaping new spatial encounters. 

Speakers include:

  • Andrew Apostola and Simon Goodrich, Portable
  • Seb Chan, ACMI
  • Hank Haeusler, UNSW
  • Matt Jones, Fed Square
  • Jade Lillie, Footscray Community Arts Centre
  • Jason Maling, Field Theory
  • Julian Rickert, One Step At A Time Like This
  • Lynda Roberts, City of Melbourne
  • Katrina Sedgwick, ACMI
  • Martin Tomitsch, USyd
  • Willoh S Weiland, Aphids
  • Marcus Westbury, Contemporary Arts Precincts and Renew Australia
  • Angharad Wynne-Jones, Arts House and Tipping Point


  • 9.30am – 11am | Panel 1
    Site: Ethics, technologies, program: how can the institution create public space?

  • 11.30am – 1pm | Panel 2
    Distribution: Space, movement, connection: how can spatial experiments connect disparate publics?

  • 2pm - 3pm | 5 x 5 x 5
    Public space as performance: five artists offer five insights over five minutes each. 

  • 3.30pm – 5pm | Panel 3
    Digital Publics: What kinds of interventions create public space? What kinds of interventions are created by public space?

  • 5pm – 6pm | Closing Panel
    An open conversation with perspectives drawn from all sessions and presented by their chairs.

On the Friday and Saturday of Pause, the Startup Expo showcases the newest products and insights from the best start ups in town. Exhibitors are able to present their ideas and plans for the future in front of the entire Pause community, speakers, special guests and major companies. This is a great opportunity for both startups and investors who for 2 days, are able to connect, collaborate and talk all things startup.  Come to the expo for live demos, giveaways, and to see if you can spot the next big thing.  


Are you a startup and ready for your big moment to shine? We've got great news for you! Apply now for one of our special "Golden Tickets" that will give you a spot at our Startup Expo and a one day conference pass for only $60! Just imagine where that exposure could take your business.


We have gathered a selection of the best of the best - the ultimate thinkers, creatives, entrepreneurs and developers will be presenting intimate, thought provoking and engaging workshops and masterclasses just for pause attendees. These masterclasses and workshops will challenge, inspire and sharpen your senses, and will make sure you have fun in the process. Come and learn, so you can create. We will be announcing these events soon, so make sure you don’t miss out. Spaces are very limited.


I have already purchased a conference pass, do I need to register?

Yes. These events have a limited capacity and are open the general public, so early registration is essential if you don't want to miss out!

I have not purchased a conference pass, can I still attend these events?

Yes! We love to share the Pause Fest experience to as many people as possible, so these events are open to everyone. However for all our other exciting events, talks, parties and experiences you will need to pick up a ticket to our conference.


Do I need to register for each event I wish to attend?

Yes. The events listed above all have a limited capacity, so prior registration is essential.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Limited parking is available to the rear of Federation Square. Pause Festival highly recommends catching public transport to all events, as we have specifically designed your Pause 2016 event experience around the transport hubs of Melbourne.
