The Symposium was held at the beautiful Abbotsford Convent - a unique and beautiful place with a rare fusion of old and new. Its 19th century landscape is filled with artists’ studios, cafes, galleries, markets and more. From intimate to grand, industrial to opulent, the Convent’s spaces are historically fascinating and bursting with character. With views of the countryside, heritage gardens and Yarra River, it’s hard to believe you are just 4km from Melbourne’s CBD.
The Symposium was held across several rooms in this unique not-for-profit community site.
Attendees met at Dights Fall on the morning of the 11th October, for a guided walk along the river to the convent.
The Before-After-Party on the 10th October was held at the eclectic Moon Dog Brewery in Abbotsford.
