Field Trip is an experimental national research symposium featuring creative practice at the intersection of art, science, technology and the environment.
In 2022, Field Trip responds to theme of Planetary Health with a series of transient experiences including walking research panels, interactive installations and environmental immersions across the Sunshine Coast. The event will explore the latest IPCC research that suggests climate changes is a threat to human health and wellbeing with a range of interdisciplinary provocations to reimagine our future.
Field Trip launched in 2020 as a response to the global pandemic and has featured some of Australia’s leading artists and researchers in hybrid presentations, panels, interactive artworks and participatory experiences online and in person. The project explores the possibilities of presenting creative research and experimental practice in extended realities and new models that move beyond the traditional format of an academic conference.
