14th Annual Conference – Throwing the Baby Out With the Bathwater 2018

On Saturday 28 July at Redfern Community Centre, Sydney we enjoyed an incredible day of inspiring speakers. Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and efforts to either organising the day and/or presenting. A selection of presentations from the day:

SJIEC Conference Panel: Social justice, pedagogy and social media: Teachers talking social justice:
Alistair Gibbs – “When you’re sharing all of your selves, that’s when anti-bias works best”. Alistair on the power of vulnerability in embedding anti-bias practise in our work with children and families.
Stephen Gallen – Stephen respectfully (and with beauty) shared his revelations about children’s perspective and agency that deep reflection provides.
Kathy Gelding – Kathy passionately shared the beginnings of her exciting PhD research along with the important work she does with tertiary students surrounding contemporary Aboriginal art and perspectives.

Live Broadcast of The Early Education Show with Lisa Bryant, Liam McNicholas and Leanne Gibbs.

A/Prof Felicity McArdle: Keynote Address: Somethin’ about art and culture. Associate Professor Felicity McArdle asked us ‘What does art actually do and how does it work?’ We were reminded that artists have the power to shift the ways we see the world and how powerful and lasting art can be as a means of communication.

Trish Highfield – Annual Nick Murphie Memorial Keynote: children in immigration detention: Calculated cruelty – State sanctioned suffering. Trish’s fearless, shocking and heartbreaking sharing about children in detention shook us to our collective core. We are moved to listen, to reflect and to respond individually and together in anyway we possible can.
