INVITATION

On behalf of the Colour Society of Australia, the Organising Committee of the CSA National Conference Sydney 2021 would like to invite you to attend our conference on the theme COLOUR CONNECTIONS.

Our conference is timed to conclude on AIC International Colour Day on March 21, and will be our celebration of this event for 2021. The adoption of an international day of colour was proposed in 2008 by the Portuguese Color Association, whose president, Maria João Durão, presented the idea to our parent organization the International Colour Association for approval in 2009 at the 11th AIC Congress in Sydney. We are honoured to have Maria João Durão presenting a history of AIC International Colour Day at our conference.

About the conference theme

The theme Colour Connections acknowledges the importance of multidisciplinary approaches to colour in this era of ever-narrowing specialization. Speakers were invited to consider how their own work involving colour may be of interest and of importance in other disciplines, or to critically contrast and perhaps reconcile different specialized approaches to colour within their own discipline. We encouraged participation from designers, artists and other colour practitioners whose work references scientific or philosophical understanding of colour, from colour educators whose teaching programs span the art-science divide, and from scientific, historical and other researchers who believe that their insights about colour have relevance beyond their specialized areas of interest. We thank our speakers for their overwhelmingly generous response which has allowed us to present such a large and diverse program.

CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

Please note that our provisional schedule of speakers set out below may be subject to change without notice due to circumstances beyond our control. For more information on our individual speakers please see our daily posts on Facebook or Instagram!
