Curated Conversations


Curated Conversations offer meaning-making spaces with a little bit of structure (guiding prompts, questions, anecdotes and provocations) and focus on stories and storytelling. In this Zoom Meeting Room, there will be a conference host present in the room for the programmed two hours to support conversations.

Curated Conversations explore the Conference Themes, presentations and ideas through the sharing of our own lives and stories of experience. The focus is on sharing stories rather than opinions. Think about how your experiences from your own academic life connect to the topics under discussion. (If the topic is about kindness in the academy, you might share a story about a time when you experienced kindness, or you saw kindness happen, or you were kind.)

The Curated Conversations are a space to share lived experience, challenges, curiosities, hopes and dreams. You are also invited to build on conversations to create something together. Posters. A short video. A digital art work or artefact. Manifestos/Femifestos. Friendships. Projects. Poetry. Collaborative writing. Art-making. Strategies. Resources. Ideas. Book proposals. Activism. You might find inspiration for your responding in the Inspiration Gallery. Go to the Facebook group to continue conversations beyond the two hours programmed in each theme segment. Share ideas and creations on Facebook and Twitter.

The Curated Conversations occur in this Zoom Meeting Room during the two hours following the Webinar Room presentations. Click here to get a sense of the whole at a glance.
