Public Speaking is a unique walking and listening experience, inviting you to look at your neighbourhood through different eyes. This inspiring series of audio broadcasts asks you to take a walk through the city whilst listening to conversations between Field Theory and a series of young people from the LGBTIQA+ community of Sydney. A different conversation will be broadcast on each afternoon of Liveworks, inviting listeners to walk with these young people as they playfully persuade, conflate and scramble their intimate intergenerational perceptions of what it means to be young, queer and vulnerable in the City of Sydney.

The Order of Autophagia: The supper of terror, the lunch for the uncanny, unapologetic snacks on the apocalyptic moment
Saturday, 11:59pm, Zoom
Access: Audio description
Tickets: $40

The Order of Autophagia is a midnight dinner party, inviting you to consider a perspective on cannibalism that speaks urgently—and with dark humour—to our times. Could the practice of autophagia, where humans self-cycle their energy by eating themselves, challenge our culture of overconsumption and waste?  Tontey creates an immersive digital world and invites guests to attend her performative midnight feast. You are invited to dial in (and dine) from your own home, in costume, on faux cannibalistic recipes as you enter The Order of Autophagia.

SUNDAY

LIVE FUTURES: THE INHERITANCE OF THE FUTURE
Sunday, 2:00pm, Live streamed & on demand
Tickets: $20, concession $15

Curator
Clothilde Bullen

Bequest technologies—such as keeping places—and other forms of direct action, offer a range of options by and for First Nations peoples to support critically important opportunities for cultural continuity. The increasingly escalated destruction of natural environments, within which First Nations cultural knowledge is embedded, requires us to urgently re-think how these knowledges are retained if access to Country is denied.  

Within urban environments, different technologies must be embedded that support access to disrupted custodianship of Country, in order to create new economic, ideological and social understandings of the place of First Nations peoples. Guests in this conversation will offer the audience a variety of understandings of—and challenges to—accepted connections and histories, and a glimpse of what the new normal could be.
