This year’s theme invites the shar­ing of research and the con­tri­bu­tion of prac­tice and inno­va­tion to knowl­edge-mak­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tion for the ben­e­fit of cen­tral Aus­tralian peo­ple and country.

The Sym­po­sium extends its pre­vi­ous research exchange to include cre­ative and cul­tur­al prac­tices, and micro-enter­prise in the stream: Doing Innovation.

In addi­tion to pre­vi­ous year’s tra­di­tion­al sym­po­sium theme, the 2021 Knowl­edge Inter­sec­tions Sym­po­sium will host both sym­po­sium and inno­v­a­tive prac­tice events.

Join in to present, net­work, seek syn­er­gies, and find those inter­sec­tions that strength­en our ways of mak­ing, think­ing and exchang­ing knowl­edge through research and innovation.
