Converge Symposium

What to expect on the day

At our inaugural Converge Symposium we'll have research presentations and workshops from academyEX staff, students, and alumni. Sessions are open for all to attend, you'll hear from current academyEX students working on projects, students who have continued their research journey since completing study, as well as staff who have evolving research ideas and would like feedback.

In the evening, students and alumni will share their practice at our poster and networking session. Join us for this evening event to explore a diverse range of projects and practices, and for great conversation and networking.

Emerging from our Converge community, the Converge Symposium was created to build the academyEX research culture, support emerging researchers and to feed our collective curiosity. Join us to critically engage, ask questions and have robust discussion amongst a group of curious, open minded critical thinkers.

Join us for the full day, or just part of it.


You're welcome to join us for the whole day, or just for part of it.
