Event description


The Council for the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (CHASS) is collaborating with Laboratory Adelaide: The Value of Culture to run a two-day program of events in Adelaide.

On Thursday 1 March, we will host a day of information sharing for early career professionals in both academia and the Arts sector. These two groups of people face some similar (and some very different) challenges and scenarios and share some similar perspectives, and would benefit from networking and discussion. Perhaps primarily, both groups face precarious employment opportunities. We take the point that the concept of resilience can be seen as a response from the neoliberal world order to put back on individuals responsibility for solving systemic problems; however, it is also a term that unifies a set of strategies for combatting systemic adversity without burning out.

This free event will present participants with the opportunity to meet representatives from the Arts sector, explore current issues, participate in discussions around best practice related to research outcomes, and foster collaborations.
