Many people who menstruate, or who used to, experience strong dips in energy levels based on phases of their cycle. Energy and symptoms can vary month-to-month but by tracking our cycles and growing our menstrual awareness, we can start to see longer-term patterns in our experiences of energy and depletion. So what if we used cycle tracking and menstrual awareness to get the most out of our months by working with, not against, our cycles and helping us manage overwhelm.This webinar is a fun and practical exploration of the intersection of menstrual cycle awareness, energy and productivity.
Culture and Creativity seminar – Hong Kong Gastronomic Interiors Speaker: Dr.ir. Gerhard Bruyns Date\Time: Friday 13 October2023, 12:30-14:00Location: Building 2 Level A Room 2A12, University of Canberra (https://www.canberra.edu.au/maps/buildings-directory/building-2); or Zoom https://zoom.us/j/99552067162 AbstractLearning from, and within, specific environments raises important questions about digital and analogue technology and their integration with (online) project-based learning. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the 'technology-rich versus studio-poor experiences' of design pedagogies and their immediate realignment for the sake of becoming techno-driven. This seminar reflects on the processes, usefulness and outcomes of spatial scanning applications for analysing the physical environment that cannot be assessed by traditional methods (site, spatial measurability, and behavioural research). Presenting the collective effort of an environmental design programme, the Vertical Studio Hong Kong Gastronomic Interiors exhibition will be used as backdrop to interpret the crossover between the digital and the analogue as a response to a variety of technological, societal and heritage challenges. BioDr.ir. Gerhard Bruyns is an architect and urbanist. He is an associate professor of Environment and Interior Design at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University's School of Design in Hong Kong. He is the PhD coordinator, the Deputy Specialisation Leader of Transition Environments Design, and the Discipline Leader of Environmental and Interior Design. He holds a PhD and MSc from TU Delft, the Netherlands. His research deals with the aspects of spatial forms and how typologies of use impact behaviour through the formal expression of space. This relates to the societal conditions of cities whose landscapes are compressed by speculation and excess. He has published research in journals, conferences, and edited volumes, with the most recent being a Springer-published editorial collection on Design Commons. Culture and Creativity Seminar Series is hosted by the Centre for Cultural and Creative Research (CCCR), Faculty of Arts and Design, University of Canberra.

In tough economic times, it is important to take measures to bolster your awareness of your current financial position and the broader economy to help ease your mind. Some approaches would be to create a budget, shop around for the best rates to alleviate repayments, consolidate any existing debts, have ‘rainy day funds’ and stay informed of the economy/financial markets.
We live in an era of sensory overload and short attention spans, in which it can be hard to find time to pause, think, and write. Rather than attempting to stem this tide, this workshop will instead use a disparate array of visual stimuli – both images and texts – to explore how fragments and brief encounters can not only draw out our individual creativity, but also give rise to stimulating and surprising collaborative work in voices which may not be our own. As well as leaving with a pocket full of seeds from which to grow our own poems, we’ll also write something together which will be bigger than all of us.Suitable for all: just bring pens, paper, and an open mind.
Workshop descriptionThis is a one-day poetry workshop for people wanting to play with page-space and visual ways to experiment with words. We will be experimenting with a variety of methods and media, including collage, stamping, redaction, typewriting, pens and paints. Things will get messy so wear old clothes and be prepared to have fun. The medium is the message!Presenter biographyDr Caren Florance mixes art and writing all the time. Her creative practice includes collaborative page-spaces such as artist books, posters, broadsides and zines. She has one commercial poetry volume and it is seriously vispo: Lost in Case (Cordite, 2019).
Rik draws on his 18 years of experience as a game designer and narrative designer to share the lessons he has learned that have made him a stronger story writer. Games don't give much space or time for telling the narrative through text or long dialogue, so narrative designer and game writers must learn to master and maximise ‘Showing Not Telling' through approaches such as dialogue and environmental story telling.
Do writers write in isolation? No! We write as entities in unique webs of connection. Writing with and about more-than-humans is legitimate and urgent work in an age of species extinction and climate destruction. This workshop acknowledges the weight of the stories we create, including stories of celebration, remembrance, and mourning.Storytelling occurs in many ways and includes orality/aurality, art, writing, and performance.Please bring your own writing/art supplies. Photographs of your more-than-human companions are most welcome!
