AAANZ 2021 Conference: IMPACT

Updated: Mar 11

Recorded presentations available to watch now!



So, you attended the recent AAANZ conference, but couldn’t be in multiple places at once to watch the concurrent panel sessions full of amazing speakers – fret not! The super conference organising team arranged for all panels and keynotes to be recorded.


If you registered to attend the conference, you would have received an email by now with the access passcode. If you haven't received a passcode, please email the conference organisers to arrange for this to be resent. Contact Nicholas Croggon: nicholas.croggon@sydney.edu.au.


Recordings will be available online until 31 March 2022. A wealth of topics and ideas were explored under the theme of IMPACT, addressing multiple current and historic expressions of this theme in art history, visual culture, collecting institutions and universities.

Of special note are the panels convened and papers presented by staff, HDR candidates, and alumni from the Disciplines of Art History, Film Studies, and Museum & Heritage Studies (see links to recordings below). The keynote speakers also notably included Julie Nagam (Winnipeg University), a forthcoming Power Institute Terra Visiting Professor, who addressed how decolonial tools, as material or technological objects, can aid Indigenous people to mobilise their stories and knowledges in “Augmented Futures: The Digital in Public Space and Place”.

Ruangrupa, a Jakarta-based collective, shared insights into their all-encompassing social, spatial, and personal practice, strongly linked to Indonesian culture in which solidarity and community are central values.

In their plenary session, Chill vibes only”, curators Nanette Orly and Talia Smith looked to the future of diversity and inclusion, including the ways in which people of colour in the arts are reimagining their futures through collectivism, dismantling, and rebuilding.

The recordings are available now but will only remain active until 10 March, so make sure to get your dose of culture soon! Head over to the conference website and get watching!
