We are excited to come together face to face and forge our next steps together.Everyone is welcome!Please register on this link for catering as well as for Covid safety purposes.We are fortunate to have an external facilitator, Rho Sandberg, who has generously volunteered her time to help us explore the idea that 'Kindness isn't weakness' in the context of how we live and work together as a restorative community in Canberra. Discussions that may arise include:How can we recognize and ‘see each other’ in our positions of personal and professional activity in our community?What are the shared values that will help us work together with integrity?How can we ensure that our relationships with each other are just and principled?How can we be stronger and kinder as individuals and more connected as a community?Facilitator Rho Sandberg MCCRho Sandberg is an ADR practitioner who supported the introduction of restorative practice in pilot and subsequent iterations of the Defence Abuse Response Taskforce.

John Dahlsen’s mapping of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch recuperates unlovely materials – found plastics collected from Australian coastlines – into engaging formal patterns. We are invited to contemplate both the rapid accumulation of microplastics in our oceans as well as John’s acts of restoration when he picks up the tiny pieces. Place-based restoration runs through these works as one connecting theme: it is no coincidence that creative responses flourish where damage is great. Other works upend any rush to repair that may paper over damage that needs to be dwelt with. This collection mends and upends, often together, with slow-going practices of repair keeping company with exuberant explorations of breaking and unmaking. About the artists:The University of Canberra’s Faculty of Arts and Design annual exhibition presents diverse creative responses to the inspiration, and provocation, of the theme Upending | Mending. Our artists, designers and creative educators bring together a variety of approaches to their practice – recuperating found materials, collaborating with communities, using art to focus attention on ugly matters – but share a sense that creative expression is central to their ways of reflecting, repairing and questioning the world. Featuring:Monica Andrew, Rhonda Ayliffe, Ben Ennis Butler, Louise Curham, John Dahlsen, Dianne Firth, Caren Florance, UK Frederick, Katie Hayne, Paul Hetherington, Kerry Martin, Max Maxwell, Ross McLennan, Vahri McKenzie, HK Plum, Claire Rosslyn Wilson, Sam Tomkins, Bethaney Turner, Jen Webb, Kirsten Wehner and John White

The UC Community are invited to a Film Screening of In My Blood It Runs, followed by a panel discussion, as part of National Reconciliation Week at UC.About the filmIn My Blood It Runs follows the life of ten-year-old Arrernte/Garrwa boy Dujuan and his family. The film charts the challenges Dujuan faces as he meets the overt and concealed prejudices still perpetuated against Aboriginal people/First Australians in Australia today: in school, at home and on the streets of Alice Springs. In My Blood It Runs reveals the ways marginalised First Nations communities negotiate the colonial culture and keep their identities and cultures alive through self-determination, the revitalisation of languages and cultural practices.Ten-year-old Dujuan is a child healer, a good hunter and speaks three languages. Yet Dujuan is ‘failing’ in school and facing increasing scrutiny from the police. As he travels perilously close to juvenile detention, his family fight to give him a strong Arrernte education alongside his western education. We walk with him as he grapples with these pressures, shares his truths and somewhere in-between finds space to dream, imagine and hope for his future self.Light refreshments will be served. Registrations required.

After a massive rejig and a whole heap of calendar juggling, we're thrilled to announce the brand new rescheduled dates for our HELLO MY BEAUTIFUL WORLD album tour. Based on how things are going, these dates should be a hoot and hopefully, by then, the powers that be will let us all sing and dance together again. It feels like forever since we have seen you all, and we can't wait to come visit and play these new tunes for you - so please hold onto your tickets! When these shows finally happen next year, it's going to be beautiful. We are also excited to announce that we are partnering with an organization called Carbon Co to calculate the emissions generated from our flights and driving on this tour and offset them. The system works by funding and supporting projects which reduce greenhouse gas emissions via a range of technologies in projects from around the world. More details can be found on the touring page of our website ??????.~Fresh from the announcement of their forthcoming fourth album, Hello My Beautiful Worldout Friday 20 August via Wonderlick Recording Company, today Holy Holy shares their irrepressible new single The Aftergone (feat. CLEWS). To mark the release, the sonic masterminds have announced a national tour in November and December. Holy Holy’s exhilarating live spectacle will commence on Thursday 5 November in Perth, and continue throughout Margaret River, Bunbury, Torquay, Frankston, Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong, Newcastle, Sydney, the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville, Cairns, Adelaide, Hobart and Launceston.Recorded in a series of modest studios and spare rooms in Tasmania and Victoria, Holy Holy’s fourth album, Hello My Beautiful World is perhaps their most fully realised. Built upon a foundation of electronic beats and rolling synths, the record combines lush string arrangements, May-esque guitar riffs and chanted vocals to produce a heady and persuasive mix. The record moves fluidly through a collection of feverish moods and atmospheres, unfolding unpredictably and building to a series of fierce and manic highs. It’s a dense and ambitious record suited to close and repeated listening.Like many records you will hear throughout 2021, Hello My Beautiful World was largely forged in the midst of Australia's lockdown period. The pair didn't tackle the album entirely on their own - Japanese Wallpaper added distinctive texture and flair across the album, CLEWS, meanwhile, have their voices featured on the incessant, electric cut The Aftergone, and of course there is the hyperactive, fiery guest verses of Melbourne rapper Queen P on Port Rd. Throw in the flourishes of composer Toby Alexander's string arrangements, plus collaborations with The Presets Kim Moyes, and you're looking at a record that sees the band redefining itself as a powerful force in the Australian songwriting landscape.Featuring lead single Port Rd. feat. Queen P, the grandiose second single How You Been and recent arresting album track Believe Anything, Hello My Beautiful World is an accomplished release from a band that is certainly not short on accomplishments. With their three full-length albums to date, the duo have built a loyal and dedicated fanbase with over 100 million streams across their body of work and multiple gold and platinum singles hanging on their walls. If that wasn't enough, there are nominations for ARIA Awards, J Awards and National Live Music Awards to take note of, all maintained through their fanatically attended live shows and unique songwriting.Hello My Beautiful World will be released through Wonderlick Recording Company on Friday 20 August.

Carla Geneve is a 23 year old singer-songwriter based in Perth, Western Australia. Backed by a captivating show and unique brand of brutally honest lyricism, Geneve established herself as one of Australia's most prominent up and coming artists, promoting her critically acclaimed EP with a debut tour of North America in support of indie heavyweights San Cisco, and returning home to Australia for several completely sold out national tours. The debut LP from Carla Geneve ‘Learn To Like It’ (released April 8 via Remote Control/Dot Dash) is a 10 track tour de force through teenage emotion and the complexities of coming of age. Traversing an expanse of sonic territory from punk, blues, country and Australiana future classics, ‘Learn to Like It’ has been described by Australian Guitar Magazine as “…a beautifully bold, powerfully personal introduction to Geneve’s world as an undoubtable creative prodigy.” She tours her famously affecting and vulnerable live show nationally in May/June

Globally we are facing a biodiversity crisis, with species becoming extinct at an unprecedented rate. What if extinction was not forever, and we could ‘de-extinct’ species? Modern molecular approaches are making it increasingly feasible to bring back extinct species. Internationally, efforts have focused on species as diverse as passenger pigeons and woolly mammoths. In Australia there has been a particular focus on the potential to recreate the extinct Tasmanian tiger.While the molecular science is advancing rapidly there are a range of important questions about de-extinction. How feasible is it really?? Are there concerns from ecological, ethical and Indigenous perspectives? Should we recreate extinct species or focus our limited resources on preventing extinction?Our esteemed panel will discuss these issues and more in a free-flowing session based on short presentations from different perspectives and an open forum with questions from the floor.We are fortunate to have three confirmed speakers on this fascinating and controversial topic.Andrew J Pask is a Professor in the School of BioSciences at the University of Melbourne. Andrew does research in Reproduction, Developmental Biology, Endocrinology and Evolutionary Biology. Most recently he has led a research program aimed at de-coding the genome of the Tasmanian tiger and understanding the potential for it’s de-extinction. Gregory Andrews was Australia’s first appointed Threatened Species Commissioner and is a former Ambassador and senior climate change negotiator. During his time in the Australian Public Services’ he was one of the most senior Indigenous staff members. Mr Andrews has a strong understanding of biodiversity conservation in Australia from practical, policy and Indigenous perspectives. Professor Kerrie Wilson is the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Sustainability Strategy) at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Kerrie has two decades of experience leading and conducting research into the science, strategy and policy of conservation. She is particularly interested in applied resource allocation problems, such as how to invest limited resources to protect or restore biodiversity and what sociopolitical and institutional factors influence investment success in conservation.

So, just what is it that mental health nurses do?A central aspect of national strategies and plans for mental health service provision is the requirement to expand and sustain a skilled mental health nursing workforce. One challenge to recruitment is describing and communicating nursing practice and its impact. This presentation will attempt to provide clarity by exploring the recent history of mental health nursing in Australia with examples of innovative practice. Research that highlights practice transformation demonstrates what is possible and provides a foundation on which to build and extend the discipline. Lessons from other practice domains will be examined for their lessons for mental health nursing, and potential directions discussed
Kirklandd is a Serbian-Australian rapper, songwriter and instrumentalist who exists in the inbetween, evolving in his style but never adhering to any one sound. The Canberra artist has gradually found a unique direction in his music, grounded in hip-hop but drawing inspiration from alt-rock and punk.Following a recent co-sign from T-Pain, Kirklandd has been working on his debut mixtape with collaborators including Taka Perry (Denzel Curry), Young Monks, Jack Moffitt (The Preatures) and Tasker (Rest for the Wicked), carefully crafting a sound that captures the essence of the 2000s punk and alt-rock Kirklandd grew up listening to.Curating an immersive, high energy new live set with his band to capture this sound, Kirklandd recently debuted his upcoming single, ‘OTHERSIDE’ live supporting Dune Rats, following the tracks placement as a Top 40 finalist in the Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition.Now announcing a new show to preview the new music he’s about to release, Kirklandd is set to headline UC Hub on June 10th with his live band and support from Muesli, Ava Martina and Flowermarket.
THE JEZABELSPrisoner 10 Year Anniversary Tour MELBOURNE, AU (Nov 1, 2021) – THE JEZABELS have just announced a national tour to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of their 2011 Australian Music Prize, ARIA & AIR Award Winning, ARIA #2, iTunes #1, Gold Album Prisoner! For the first time, the band will be playing their most successful record, in its entirety live on stage. “We couldn't be more excited to be getting back together again for an Australian tour to celebrate the tenth anniversary of our debut album 'Prisoner'. We are pleased to say we'll be playing this baby live in full for the first time. It's been a hell of a decade since it came out, but it's made us all the more grateful for some of the things we took for granted. Like so many bands, playing our records live was always as important, if not more important, than making those records. We can't think of a better way to celebrate 'Prisoner' and say thank you to our fans that have supported us over the years than to announce this tour. We hope you can join us,” says the band. Tickets go on sale at 12pm, Wednesday November 4. My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning 12pm, Thursday November 3. For complete tour and ticketinformation, visit: livenation.com.au. Prisoner is a panoramic study of tension and emancipation, from the echoing stone cathedral of the title track to the sun-blasted morning of the first single, Endless Summer; from the cloistered atmospherics of the instrumental interlude, Austerlitz, to the chiming and climbing pop of Deep Wide Ocean and the quiet reflecting pool of Peace of Mind. To mark the occasion, they will be releasing a limited collectors 7inch of a live recording of City Girl, captured at the Forum Theatre in Melbourne in 2011. The 7inch will only be available to ticket buyers to purchase. “Prisoner is also arguably the only Jezabels album that feels like an entirely cohesive body of work. The songs occupy the same musical universe — and more often than not, they bleed into each other, making the full 59-minutes feel like one great continuous ebb and flow.”Junkee “The Jezabels' immense sound isn't just imposing; it also upends familiar assumptions.” Sydney Morning Herald.

Students of refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds are an underrepresented group in higher education with only 5% having access to higher education. This figure is well below the global average of higher education enrolment among non-refugees, which stands at 39%. The diversity, knowledge, and educational aspiration developed through students’ life experiences must be celebrated and the rich contribution made to our institution and to society recognised.

triple j, Select Music, One Louder, Fingerless Glove Projects and Prawn Records Present.. Ball Park MusicThe Weirder & Weirder TourWith Special Guests Ball Park Music head out on the road for the first headline tour in 4 years… The weirdest thing about The Weirder & Weirder Tour is that it will be the band’s first headline tour in four years. While this almost implies the band have been quiet, nothing could be further from the truth. Over that period the band has written two incredible albums, delivering their usual array of timeless classic tunes to an ever-increasing fan base and wherever possible, have found their way on stage for numerous festivals across the country. As recently as January, the band secured their 15th Hottest 100 entry with 'Sunscreen', the first taste from their forthcoming 7th studio record, due for release in June 2022. Ball Park Music are thrilled to be joined by Adelaide duo Teenage Joans, as well as Melbourne band RAT!hammock. Should guarantee a fun filled night for all. Tickets will sell fast…
