Abstract or Description


The Learning Event will focus on the visualisation of intercultural action in the age of unsettlement. It is based on the proposition that the deepening problems and complexity of climate change, global geopolitical instability, actual and potential inter-cultural conflict, global inequity and rapid technological change all combine to unsettle vast numbers of people in numerous ways.

The program will work through each element of the theme – visualisation; the intercultural; action; and unsettlement – to constitute ‘a strategic change platform’. This does not imply the immediate delivery of ‘solutions’ but rather viable ways to work together on problems over time in the context of a ‘situated scale’ that is within the capacity of an informed and motivated small group of people.

This is a project to create projects. The objective is to develop and present visually challenging concepts that propose and explore new intercultural forms, institutional forms, events, movies, etc., that enable the idea of unsettlement to become part of everyday understanding of the contemporary world – this in an exhibition form.
