Hear Australasian postgraduate candidates present their current or recently completed research projects in the field of photography in a forum that will enable the sharing and discussion of their research.

It is coordinated by Associate Professor Christopher Stewart (University of Technology, Sydney) and Rebecca Shanahan (The National Art School, Sydney).

Keynote presentations, lunch and refreshments included.
