Please join the Indigenous Knowledge Institute to celebrate the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples on August 9 and 10.
The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples marks the day of the first meeting, in 1982, of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations of the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights.
To recognise this day, the Indigenous Knowledge Institute is hosting a two-day symposium to showcase and celebrate a variety of Indigenous knowledges from across the University of Melbourne and the community. We will discuss ways to draw Indigenous knowledges into different areas including policy, health, justice, and education.
The event will be delivered both in-person and online and will be Auslan interpreted.

Join us for this webinar as part of the AI in Private Spaces Seminar Series given by CAIDE researchers investigating Physical place, digital space, and the pervasive devices that bind them: understanding our ever-connected world.
This project investigates what individuals understand about the relationship between physical place, digital space and the pervasive devices that bind them. It asks how much we understand about the impact this relationship has on our day-to-day lives and our rights more broadly. Using the University of Melbourne as a case study, the researchers will present their findings from speaking with members of the UoM community.
For this seminar, Dr Aleks Michalewicz, Dr Kristal Spreadborough and Dr Marc Cheong will present their research from the CAIDE seed funding round pervasive devices. The session with be moderated by Professor Liz Sonenberg, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Systems Innovation. The project was funded under CAIDE’s 2021 seed funding round Pervasive Devices, in the AI in Private Spaces research stream.
