The nature of jewellery training, practice, exhibition and professional development means that strong international networks underpin successful national practices.

Thursday 06
18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Chinese Literature and World Literature: Views from the South : This China in Conversation teases out from an Australian and Chinese perspective the issues surrounding interpreting and reading world literature. Website | More Information
World literature was long defined in the English speaking world as an established canon of European masterpieces, but an emerging global perspective has challenged this European focus. Now it is better understood as literature that has travelled, and been translated, from its original source. This China in Conversation teases out from an Australian and Chinese perspective the issues surrounding interpreting and reading world literature: from the classics of Chinese literature to J.M.Coetzee’s works that travel from South Africa to Australia and translate to Chinese readers; from the controversial novels of author Yu Hua to Nobel Prize recipient Mo Yan. Join in the conversation and discuss what is lost and gained in globalised literature.
Friday 07
13:00 - TALK - Friday Talk - Women, Feminism and Art in Australia since 1970 Website | More Information
Feminism has been one of the most durable political-ethical platforms of the 20th and 21st centuries – so much so that we speak of first-, second- and third-wave feminism and its impact on society and on academic scholarship throughout the world.

In her illustrated talk, Anne Marsh will look at contemporary art and feminism and give an overview of ‘the waves’ and the political and theoretical issues that have compelled artists and writers in the field.

Anne Marsh is a Professorial Research Fellow at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne. Her presentation is part of a new ARC Discovery project that involves various publications. While in Perth, Anne will be conducting workshops with artists to gain their input into the project.
Saturday 08
11:30 - EVENT - Going Slow - Slow Art Day Website | More Information
Take a more contemplative approach to art by joining us for a gallery tour with a difference. Much like a mindfulness exercise, where you focus on your breathing, in this tour you allow your mind to settle on selected pieces of contemporary art.

Each viewing will be followed by a facilitated discussion of your own subjective observations.

This free event is part of Slow Art Day, celebrated internationally on 8 April. Registration essential.
Saturday 15
14:00 - EVENT - For visitors with visual impairment: Audio Description and Tactile Tour Website | More Information
