Together with presenters Meri Fatin and Geraldine Blake, panelists will explore how Chinese and Australian artists approach problems of positioning, distance and perspective in relation to the past and the future.

Local, national and international panelists include novelists Liz Byrski, Brooke Davis and Elizabeth Tan, Cleverman writer/creator Ryan Griffen, Chinese science-fiction writer Xia Jia, poets Wayne Price and Paul Hetherington, and young adult author Dianne Touchell among others.
