Public Pedagogies Institute Conference: Sometimes Connect

When: 24-25 November 2022
Where: Public Pedagogies Institute, Melbourne, Australia

Registrations are now open for the Public Pedagogy Institute conference—Sometimes Connect 24th and 25th of November at the Nicholson St Campus, Victoria University. This is a hybrid event so participants can attend in person or via zoom.

Our first keynote speaker is Dr Marnie Badham. With a 25-year history of art and justice practice in both Canada and Australia, Marnie’s research sits at the intersection of socially engaged art practice, participatory methodologies, and the politics of cultural measurement. Through aesthetic and dialogic forms of encounter and exchange, Marnie’s collaborative social practices bring together disparate groups of people (artists, communities, industry, local government) in dialogue to examine and affect local issues.

We are also excited to announce that on day 2 of the conference Aseel Tayah will engage us in some of her work. Aseel is the Founder and CEO of BUKJEH Cultural Consultant |  Creative Director  Art Producer VMC Excellence in the art  & WAW Creative art pioneer award 2020 winner. Websites :
