2017: THE BIRDS & THE BEES
Siteworks is Bundanon’s annual Spring event which brings scientists, artists and community voices together to share knowledge and ideas arising from the Bundanon sites through a series of discussions, presentations and experiences.
Siteworks volunteers are the face of the event and play a vital role in creating an enhanced experience for audiences. This is a rare opportunity for those interested in contemporary art, science or working/studying in the fields of art, hospitality and events to develop skills and experience in the industry.
No prior experience needed, just enthusiasm and willingness to contribute to a community event. If you would like to volunteer or have any questions please contact the Programs Team at
firstname.lastname@example.org or on 02 4422 2121.

There is a great unpaid internship opportunity with Evolve Communities (http://www.evolves.com.au) up for offer for an advanced 2nd year or third year BCM/BDM student. This is a small company based at iAccelerate on the IC doing really interesting work on cultural competency and awareness amongst other things.
This sounds like a great opportunity for a socially engaged content producer.
Contact Carla @ Evolve if you are motivated, interested, and willing to contribute.
Evolve provides unique tools and programs for organisations to engage their staff, clients and customers. To do this we draw on ancient Dreamtime knowledge, bringing the wisdom of Indigenous Elders to the forefront.
We help organisations’ who need to develop strong relationships with communities, especially Indigenous communities, to solve tough problems together. We do this through cultural awareness training and education programs, executive coaching, community engagement design and supporting educational resources. The ultimate outcome is a win: win for the organization and community, with real differences in people’s lives such as closing the gap in disadvantage in health and wellbeing, education and employment.
INNOVATION – WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY
Evolve have created the Songlines™ Engagement Model and Meeting Marketplace™, unique and award winning collaboration and engagement approaches used extensively across Australia. At the heart of both models is a design thinking approach, which we would apply to the design, development and the way that we deliver our digital literacy programs and resources.
Our innovative approaches cater to all diversities. We are developing the Virtual Marketplace™ which is a 3D space that is immersive for participants and generates genuine engagement. Supporting our innovation, Evolve are part of iAccelerate, the University of Wollongong’s (UOW) business incubator program and Innovation Campus.

Newell works with diverse materials and across disciplines that comment on phenomena in contemporary society with particular attention paid to intercultural exchanges. His current projects play with language, code, and the archives.

You can find out more about Newell’s works at the Roslyn Oxley Gallery website.
