IETM Multi-location in Melbourne (online)

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the local Plenary meeting in Melbourne, Australia, will be held entirely online and will be hosted by our member Xan Colman (A is for Atlas/Dining Room Tales) with the participation of other local members. Please find below the introduction and practical information prepared by the local hosts.

Introduction by the local hosts

In our corner of Australia we are in lockdown. We’re missing each other, and we’re missing you. So we’re inviting you to Common Ingredients - A digital dinner party with the world!

We’re talking about Zoom-time in the kitchen and the dining room on Friday 2 October from 19:00 to 21:00 AEST, sharing food and creativity with peers and colleagues far and wide, and having conversations about where we are, how we’re traveling and where we might like to go next. 

All participants will be requested to organise some common ingredients from which you can prepare your own meal during the meeting. Please find the list of ingredients on the session's page.

Across the evening we will facilitate small-group interaction to stimulate connections between members, during which we will situate, cook our meals, and eat together. Interspersed (of course!) with some short creative interventions from local members. 

This is a gathering not just for a local South-Eastern corner of Australia, but for us and beyond, well beyond. Maintaining and deepening our links.

Yes this is dinner time in Melbourne. But also an early dinner in Hong Kong, Taipei or Tokyo? Late lunch in Ekaterinburg? Lunch or brunch across Europe? A very early breakfast in São Paulo or a midnight sack in LA? Wherever you are in the world, if you’re awake and hungry, please join us!

Maximum capacity: 100 participants

Note that, as this local online meeting takes place as a singular event only on Friday 2 October, participants are encouraged to join other online sessions hosted digitally by different locations, in particular in the Asia-Pacific, in addition to the IETM online programme.

Accessibility

It is our aim to make IETM meetings as accessible as possible. However, it may not be possible to offer services at every location and, therefore, we recommend that you check the accessibility conditions of the location of your interest.

In order to meet the needs as much as possible, we collect your access requirements when you create your account and register for the meeting. Regarding speech-to-text captioning, we can only guarantee captions for the main IETM online programme (marked as working sessions on the page).

If you have any questions regarding the overall accessibility of the local online meeting in Melbourne, you are welcome to write to our Production Officer at [email protected].
