The biennial conference of the Australian Curriculum Association Conference in Sydney in October. In a nutshell the conference will have two themes: innovative approaches to curriculum and dealing with contested issues. A real local focus is going to be a spotlight on Sydney's refugee population. Rapper/Poet Omar Musa is performing and Kooshyar Karimi, author of Journey of a Thousand Storms will be one of our speakers. Tracey Donohue who featured in the Four Corners expose on Nauru is presenting a workshop.
