QATA Conference discounted tickets

QATA Conference discounted tickets

Thanks to your very generous support, the Annual QATA State Conference has now sold out. This year we offer two very full and inspiring days of curriculum exchange, artist inspiration and creative experiences.
This is very exciting news, but we don’t like to leave anyone disappointed. This year we would like to offer a small number of single- or two-day discounted tickets to fill the few available spots in the program.
Discounted tickets are $100 per day for members and non-members.

For Friday registrations only, we have an additional experience at QUT Art Museum to visit the Vis-ability exhibition. Drawing on research in QUT’s Creative Industries Faculty, Vis-ability proposes alternative ways of engaging with the Art Collection, considering how technologies can deepen our understanding of vision and challenging our sight-driven experience of art.

Visitors will have the opportunity to experience tactile models and audio descriptions, in conjunction with selected works on display. Vis-ability aims to increase the visibility of the QUT Art Collection, while broadening audiences’ perception of ‘visual’ art. It brings to light that which is unseen, and draws on different perspectives, positions and senses, to encourage different ways of seeing.
