This month has been very busy so far with presentations, symposiums and workshops.
At the beginning of the month I presented a talk about sustainability behaviour change and lessons learnt from the LivingGreener program. The talk was included as part of the World Usability Day event, hosted by Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
The following week I did a presentation to the Institute of Applied Ecology about some of my art/sci work.
Then last week, I went to a fantastic workshop using design thinking for evidence-based policy, which was organised through work and facilitated by the Australian Futures Project. What I liked about this workshop was that it was very hands on – using user centred design processes and design thinking in a number of activities.
This Thursday will be the last one for November and the year. I will be part of a panel for the ASLEC-ANZ conference. ASLEC-ANZ means Association for the Study of Literature, Environment & Culture – Australia & New Zealand. Our panel is titled Art, Ecology and Governance – Intercreate and will feature Michelle Maloney, Ilka Blue, Sandy Sur, Thomas Dick, Leah Barclay and moi. Nigel Helyer will be the panel chair.
After that, head will be down and tail up getting ready for an exhibition at CSIRO Discovery Centre in January.
