When and Where?

All Hands on Deck will be held on 19-21 July 2023, at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in Ultimo, Sydney / Gadigal land.

Is it free? Do I need to register?

This is a free event, and all are welcome to attend. Due to UTS events protocols it will be essential to register. The symposium program and registration links will be circulated closer to the date.

All UTS buildings are wheelchair accessible. At any time, please free to let us know of any accessibility requirements you may need.

Symposium format

The current plan is that symposium will be held predominantly in person, at the University of Technology Sydney. Given these uncertain times, we will be flexible with the format as required. We also plan to run a small program of events alongside the symposium for speakers to attend, including a workshop by Relative Creative.

Will there be online sessions?

Yes, there will be some online sessions, to incorporate further international and interstate participation (particularly for those who are understandably avoiding air travel for reasons of climate / health / family). We will endeavour to schedule these online sessions at times that are friendlier to as many relevant time-zones as possible (although it will be a juggle!) At this stage these sessions are planned to be online-only, not hybrid.

Will the events be recorded?

Pending costs, we plan to audio-record some in-person sessions, and we will record the online symposium sessions. We will share the recordings on this site, with the consent of the speakers.

We are very lucky to have the incredible artist Sam Wallman graphically recording many of the symposium sessions – which will provide a fantastic visual and textual record. More of Sam’s work can be seen here.

We are currently exploring options for an audio producer to create a podcast about the event.

Can I attend if I am not a speaker?

Everyone is welcome, although prior registration is essential, even for audience members. The symposium program and registration links will be circulated closer to the date.
