This session features three research panels in which colleagues report on the progress of their ARC funded research projects and a reflective practice panel that explores decentring pedagogy.
AusStage is a multi-institutional mega consortium of Australian and international researchers. This panel, AusStage after 20 years offers an overview of the internationalisation of the platform through research, presented by Associate Professor Gillian Arrighi, Associate Professor Jonathan Bollen, Dr Sarah Thomasson and Professor Jonathan W Marshall.
The Staging Australian Women’s Lives project draws attention to the indelible achievements and contributions of Australia’s women theatre makers. Working with a national network of directors and dramaturgs, actors, designers, producers and theatre companies, the project documents the methods theatre makers use to address gendered oppression and violence. In addition to addressing inequities within theatre, the project aims to give Australian women useful tools for countering inequality and oppression in their own lives.
Creative Convergence: Enhancing Impact in Regional Theatre for Young People is a large-scale ARC Linkage project that has run from 2017-21. In this panel discussion, the Chief Investigators engage in dialogue with industry partners to reflect on what the project achieved, and what can be learnt from its limitations.
Finally, the Towards the Decentred Conservatoire panel reflects on teaching praxis that seeks critique established institutional conventions. Presented by Georgina Naidu, Colin Sneesby, Dr Sarah Austin and Amy Hume.
