Programme structure

The Delegate Programme is here, en français ici, y en español aquí.

The list of options for 'Session on the Move' on Tuesday 4 October is here.  We will contact delegates to select a session ahead of the Summit.

Programme Advisor for the 5th World Summit on Arts and Culture, Robyn Archer AO,  has worked closely with IFACCA in the development of the Summit theme and selection of conference programme topics and speakers.

The content of the World Summit programme is managed by IFACCA to ensure continuity across previous World Summit themes and outcomes, relevance to its members and its objectives, and global profile and participation.  While primarily international in its focus, the programme also draws on Australian perspectives, experiences and case studies.

The 5th World Summit programme comprises keynotes, panel sessions, round-table discussions, case study presentations and networking opportunities.  Each day of the Summit will start with a short language learning session with actor, storyteller and Spinifex man, Trevor Jamieson, who will introduce delegates to some simple phrases in Pitjantjatjara  language.  Many Indigenous languages throughout the world are extinct or endangered and this is true for Australia.  Start your day by helping keep one of them very much alive.

The World Summit’s cultural programme has been developed in consultation with Brett Sheehy, the Artistic Director for the Melbourne Festival. 

The World Summit will also include an opening ceremony, conference dinner, cultural tours and other related functions.

IFACCA will be holding a number of events for its members prior to the conference, including its General Assembly.
