Learning and Teaching Through Communities: Geelong

The Public Pedagogies Institute in partnership with the City of Greater Geelong and Deakin University are pleased to announce a one day symposium Learning and Teaching Through Communities. This event will be held at Deakin University Waterfront Campus on July 25th.

The symposium will explore learning and teaching in community-based settings and environments and will feature a keynote speaker as well as presentations from guest speakers currently working on projects in the Geelong region.

The Symposium’s keynote speaker—Liss Gabb is a creative producer, director, and curator in the field of participatory arts and social justice. Over the past 20 years Liss has developed a socially engaged practice that is based on working in partnership with communities that experience structural disadvantage. Liss provides the artistic leadership for cohealth Arts Generator, an award winning, participatory arts space that is a division of cohealth, one of Australia’s largest community health providers.

The Public Pedagogies Institute (PPI) is committed to Interconnecting public, learning and research. PPI aims to provide a platform for engagement and exchange between practitioners, researchers and organisations working in the areas of learning and teaching in the community or outside formal education institutions.

We aim to increase the profile of work being done in the area of Public Pedagogies, as well as provide an opportunity for connections to be made between community members and researchers who are interested in collaborating on projects.

If you have a project that you would like to present as a part of this day please send a paragraph describing your work to Karen.Charman@vu.edu.au by Friday the 13th of July.

If you are interested in attending please visit our Eventbrite page to register. Places are limited and the cost is $10.00.
