12:00 - Art Exhibition - The Art of Zhen Shan Ren : (Free admission) Website | More Information
In a confused world still tainted by a gross abuse of humanity, 18 artists have found a peaceful yet powerful way to express their wish for the end to the largest humanitarian concern in the world today through a return to traditional culture and values.

The artists in this exhibition are painting from their conscience and understanding of the greater good. Their works range widely, from placid inner visions to social realities, and combine to provide a unique window into one important (and often untold) part of the current chapter in Chinese history. The artworks tell the story of the tens of millions of practitioners of Falun Gong, an ancient meditation practice that is currently brutally persecuted by the Chinese communist regime. The paintings touch on the deeper levels of human dignity and freedom, and depict the modern triumph of good over evil.

"Our art comes from a pure heart and our work reflects our personal experience. Art is able to greatly influence the way people think and it also directly connects with human morality. The two interact." – Professor Zhang Kunlun, founder of The Art of Zhen Shan Ren International Exhibition

The exhibit encompasses four main themes: harmony, adversity, courage and justice. It is art that aspires to inform and educate, to inspire and transform, to change and reshape. The Art of Zhen Shan Ren tells the true stories of those who uphold universal values and freedom, stories from which we can all learn valuable lessons and strengthen our awareness of what is truly important. The unique quality and significance of this exhibit serves to both inform and culturally enrich.

17:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - School of Music presents: Research Seminar Series - Andrew Sutherland Website | More Information
Principles for designing an effective, post-compulsory Music curriculum suitable for Western Australia.

A new post-compulsory Music course known as the West Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) Music course was recently introduced into Year 11 and 12 in Western Australian (WA) schools after a convoluted process of creation, and its implementation into classrooms has been problematic. Given criticism levelled at its process of creation and implementation, does the WACE Music course embody effective, recognised principles to support the effective teaching and learning of music? The aim of this study is to investigate the principles which should form the basis of an effective, post-compulsory music curriculum, suitable for WA. The study involved a literature review which seeks to produce a set of principles for teaching and learning frameworks based upon international best practice in music education, and applicable in the unique geographical, historical and multicultural WA context. In addition, the study employed a researcher-designed survey instrument to examine whether Western Australian music teachers perceived these principles to be evident in their practical experiences of the WACE music course. With the subsequent publishing of a draft Australian National Arts Curriculum, it is an appropriate time to review the principles which should underpin an effective Music curriculum for senior secondary students in the WA context.

18:00 - SCREENING - FREE SCREENING: Memento (2000) More Information

16:00 - SEMINAR - “New paradigms of adenosine receptor pharmacology” Website | More Information
Dr May obtained her PhD in 2007 at The University of Melbourne under the supervision of Professor Arthur Christopoulos. Research during Dr May’s PhD focused on investigating the pharmacological properties of allosteric modulators of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and resulted in a series of important publications including five peer-reviewed original research papers and four review articles in high-ranking journals (Annu Rev Pharmacol Toxicol, PNAS, Mol Pharmacol, and JPET). Her thesis received an award of excellence from the Dean of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. In 2008, Dr May was awarded an NHMRC CJ Martin Fellowship, which led to her postdoctoral studies within the Institute of Cell Signalling, University of Nottingham, under the supervision of Prof. Stephen Hill, a world leader in the molecular pharmacology of GPCRs and studies of single-cell pharmacology. Research during Dr May’s postdoctoral studies focus on the development of population and single cell approaches to investigate new paradigms of GPCR drug action including allosterism, dimerization and biased agonism. Publications during her postdoctoral position in Nottingham include four peer-reviewed original research papers in FASEB J, Mol Pharmacol and BJP, two review articles and one book chapter. In 2011, Dr May returned 2011 to the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Monash University, where she was a recipient of the 2011 ASCEPT Denis Wade Johnson & Johnson New Investigator Award, received the 2012 Young Investigator Faculty Research Award, MIPS Monash University and was most recently awarded a 2013 ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award to investigate ‘Allosteric fingerprinting of G protein-coupled receptor monomers and oligomers’.
