About the conference theme
The theme Colour Connections acknowledges the importance of multidisciplinary approaches to colour in this era of ever-narrowing specialization. Participants are 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 encourage 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.
As previously advised, the Committee of the NSW Division of the Colour Society of Australia has been monitoring the ongoing coronavirus situation in order to decide if plans for the CSA conference, originally scheduled for September of this year, need to be modified. To maximize the chance of successfully holding a live event, the Committee has now resolved to postpone the conference for six months until March 2021. We have further resolved to make a decision in October on whether to proceed with the conference as a live event or to hold it entirely online. Provisionally the dates of the conference will be March 19-21 to coincide with International Colour Day, although this is currently subject to confirmation with our venue.
