|| Connecting the Antipodes from South Africa to Australia ||

Join Chair Professor Peter Beilharz in an engaging conversation about how the city, its planning and lived experiences, frame and shape culture and identity. With presenters Ivan Vladislavic, John Mateer, Sisonke Msimang and Meg Samuelson, he discusses the mega Johannesburg metropolis and its iconic cylindrical tower, Ponte City.
Ponte City is a negative, sometime positive, architectural landmark of Joburg and is the departure point in exploring conversations between South Africa and Australia, connecting to issues of race, space, writing, memory, cities, the visual and the future. The presenters respond to the difficult topic: 'What stories travel across the Indian Ocean?'

This public talk is presented by Thesis Eleven and Curtin University’s School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts.
