Conference Dinner
The conference dinner is being held at the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA)<http://www.mona.net.au/> on Thursday 19th September from 6:00pm.  A ferry along the Derwent River will transport delegates to MONA.  This will be an opportunity to photograph Hobart at twilight.  MONA is Australia's largest private museum and houses a diverse collection that ranges from ancient Egyptian mummies to some of the world's most infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art.  The building's subterranean design and the owner's unconventional and challenging curatorial approach make it a must-see for any visitor to Tasmania. We would to thank MONA for their support in hosting the conference dinner.
