Who’s Afraid of Public Space? Think Tank #3 – Visibility and Accessibility

Wed 23 Jun 2021

This is a past program.
This event will take place online via Zoom with live closed captions and Auslan interpretation.

Join us for the third conversation in the Think Tank series as part of the forthcoming exhibition Who’s Afraid of Public Space? A lively panel format, Think Tank #3 will engage with ideas of visibility and accessibility within public space, from architecture and transport to our cultural institutions.

Presented in partnership with Art Projects Australia (APA), this session will be moderated by ACCA’s Public Programs Coordinator Bianca Winataputri and include contributors Dewi Cooke, Eleanor Jackson, Sim Luttin, Michael Camakaris and Ed Service.

Developed with an assembly of advisors, partners and collaborators, Who’s Afraid of Public Space? is a research, publication and exhibition project that began in 2020, and will continue to develop over 2021–22. ACCA has partnered with Abbotsford Convent, Art Projects Australia, Blak Dot Gallery, Bus Projects and Footscray Community Art Centre to present a dispersed program of exhibitions and projects that consider critical ideas as to what constitutes public culture and to ask who might it be for?

ACCA is pleased to co-host further Think Tanks over the coming year to consider a wide array of considerations pertinent to each partner organisation and co-host. Each of these Think Tank discussions will continue to feed into the critical concerns of the overarching Who’s Afraid of Public Space? project, contributing to a polyphonic and polycentric understanding of our increasingly complex public realm.
