PDA Roundtable with Guest Speaker: Dr Michelle Antoinette

ARTS

Online roundtable discussion.

The Victorian roundtables explore in greater depth the ‘development horizons’ in the Public Displays of Affection (PDA) Conference Report.

Following from the 'Public Displays of Affection: How Can Artists Rebrand Soft Power?' conference in March and the publication of the conference report, the PDA Victorian roundtables will delve deeper into the relationship between arts and cultural initiatives and soft power by engaging with the development horizons established in the report.

Each roundtable is designed to be an intimate discussion and numbers will be capped at 10 people. We seek to gather a diverse range of ideas, knowledge and expertise, prioritising less-heard voices. Responses from all roundtables will be collated into a sector report published later this year.

This session will run for one hour and forty-five minutes and there will be a guest speaker to share their thoughts with participants exploring in greater depth the 'development horizons’ below in the PDA Conference Report.

  • Development Horizon – Share resources and insights to develop intercultural capability.
  • Development Horizon – Create space for critical discussion on soft power values to recontextualise relations.
