About this event

Research forum #4 How we practice counter narratives in public domains.

This forum responds to recent provocations to diversify narratives within the public sphere, including 'actual’ public space and its associated public imaginaries. At a global scale, communities are calling for greater diversity and institutional change. It is not enough that diverse narratives simply be included but are instrumental in changing the ways that institutions operate at a structural level. This forum brings together creative researchers who are concerned with generating counter memories, narratives, spaces and publics. The orientation of these practices is towards unmaking, rupturing and reworking dominant understanding and the status quo upon which our current institutions are structured, in order to actively generate more diverse futures.

Speakers:

  • Dr Veronica Tello
  • Dr Prudence Gibson
  • Ramesh Nithiyendran

  • Dr Felicity Fenner

Guest speaker:

  • Tristen Harwood – Indigenous writer and cultural critic (Naarm, Melbourne)
