This workshop is an opportunity for a conversation about links between the Ocean Connections/ Laminations Project and the interests of the CDU Governance Group. Professor Paul Carter’s introduction will begin by drawing out some of the the implications for re-thinking the concept of the region. He will discuss the idea of a ‘creative region’ and its implications for new governance models that can also incorporate performative and other creative traditions of place-making. The workshop also provides the curtain-raiser to the October 15 Laminations event. Professor Carter’s talk is followed by a roundtable discussion (participants listed below) which focuses on the intersections of the works collected in Laminations and the work being done by the Governance Group. This is also an opportunity to showcase current and emerging creative research, and capacity-building oriented research and practice being carried out at Charles Darwin University.
