Running live online for ONE DAY ONLY on Saturday the 7th of November 2020, the third annual Austen Con is a much-loved celebration and exploration of all things Jane Austen.

One of England’s most beloved novelists, Jane Austen was born in 1775 and wrote from a young age, initially to amuse her family. Her six major novels, of which Pride and Prejudice is probably the best known, are set amongst the British landed gentry and lauded worldwide for their wit, romance, and social commentary.

Completely online and interactive, this year ticket holders can partake in workshops from Bonnet-making and painting, to dancing and baking, with a wonderful array of local and international guest presenters and expert enthusiasts. They are also invited to join lively discussions and watch some of Melbourne’s finest arts companies bring Austen’s words to life.

Running concurrently across two Youtube stations on the day – Pemberley and Netherfield – the program includes:

Session 1: 9am – 10am
Choose Your Own Austen Adaptation: Join a panel of Austen-enthused creatives who will match her major novels with outlandish adaption pitches.

Session 6: 3:40pm – 4:40pm
Austen’s Global Fashion Industry: Austen’s heroines dress in a way that we think of being specifically English, but Regency-era fashion has influences and impacts around the globe. Join Hilary Davidsonfor this fascinating hour.

Also included in the ticket price is access to the wonderful Mansfield Park Market Hub (including discounts with participating vendors) and to the 24 Carrot Productions online Jane Austen-themed Escape Room. Events and escape room are still accessible for ticket holders 48 hours after the end of Austen Con.

“There are a lot of similarities between Austen’s life and some of our lockdown/iso experiences at the moment”, explains writer and Artistic Director Sharmini Kumar.

We’re all trying to find ways to entertain ourselves. I love fan conventions and I love the real mix of things that go into them – fan art, merchandise, meeting other fans. I wanted to do something for Austen fans that captured that – the community, the fun, the thoughtfulness. This year we also have increased accessibility due to the online format, including participation from vendors and contributors from various continents. It’s exciting. We’re keen to use this year’s event to continue to offer more accessibility into the future.”

Running prior to the day from the 5th of November, and as a part of Austen Con, 24 Carrot Productions also presents a limited season of their new online show Introduction to Emma. Written by 24 Carrot Productions Artistic Director and Austen Con Director Sharmini Kumar, Introduction to Emma invites audiences into an ordinary (online) university classroom where a passionate English Lit lecturer is welcoming students to their first class of the semester. Both heartfelt and humorous, the students wander through discussions about fandom, race, gender, class and privilege. And this is only their first lesson…

Following on from two highly successful years, Austen Con is normally a Melbourne/Australia-based live event, however the current global pandemic has created a unique opportunity for international access to the convention. A one-of-a-kind Austen Con, it truly is not to be missed.

ACMI, Australia’s national museum of screen culture, has today unveiled details of its ambitious multiplatform museum model, delivering a digital experience  that will transport visitors far beyond its location in Melbourne’s Fed Square, as part of its $40 million AUD redevelopment.

Ahead of its highly anticipated 2021 reopening, the museum has outlined a multiplatform model powered by a new experience operating system (XOS). It will see physical and digital content connected in ways not yet seen in Australia –  setting the museum apart and establishing ACMI as one of the most innovative and digitally transformed museums in the world.

Conceptualised by ACMI Director & CEO Katrina Sedgwick OAM in 2015, long before pandemic thinking changed the way we interact with museums, the new model is designed to offer visitors a highly accessible and more multi-faceted contemporary experience – an offer where digital technology is not simply used as a marketing tool but is an inherent component of the experience itself. By investing in curatorial and digital expertise in parallel, ACMI has reimagined what a museum experience can be.

“The new ACMI will offer an immensely rich experience that people can engage with in new ways: at home, on their devices and here at the museum itself,” Sedgwick explains. “We are launching a new brand identity and entirely new online presence, inviting people to visit our museum no matter where they are in the world. In the same way we curate and design exhibitions and programs for the physical museum, we have been developing them specifically for online across the breadth of screen culture – film, TV, videogames and art.”

In collaboration with Melbourne Fringe’s Fringe Furniture program, the Naomi Milgrom Foundation today released the design for the MPavilion 2020 stool, by local interior designer and architect Holly Board in partnership with Peter Grove, both of BoardGrove Architects. The commission—titled STOOL DOLLY—is part of MPavilion’s response to a pandemic year with greater investment in local artists and designers, while also being an extension of the Fringe Gender Equality Initiative, supported by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation. From December until the end of the MPavilion 2020 season, the stool will be used across multiple physical locations in and around Melbourne.

Responding to the necessity of ‘physical distancing’ in this time of pandemic, Stool Dolly considers how individuals can informally create separation through spatial means. Reminiscent of children’s paper dolls—where folded paper is cut into a simple human form, before becoming a train of people connected by their stretched-out arms—each plywood Stool Dolly chair can be positioned in two states: at ‘arm’s length’ (1.5m), or interlocked. When used at MPavilion events, the resulting configuration allows its users to be safely apart, together.
