FROM THE CLANT COMMITTEE, 22 JULY 2021
THE CONFERENCE & COVID
The CLANT committee have come to the difficult decision to postpone our ‘I Can’t Believe it’s not Bali: Lockdowns and Lock Ups’ 2021 Conference. The conference will be held in Darwin on a 2022 date to be fixed.
* I’ve been doing images for CLANT since 1997, and the Dingo has always been a feature as a symbol of “defending the unrepresented accused”. This time a bit different–all but one of their previous conferences have been held in Bali. For those, I have always used the Frangipani, the floral emblem of Bali. Coincidentally, last year, the city of Darwin “rediscovered” after 54 years its floral emblem was Brachychiton Megaphyllus, or the Red Kurrajong. Thus, a different flower for this year’s conference!
