SWell Conference 2019: Unfolding Wisdom
OctoberOct 18 2019 - OctoberOct 20 2019 Australia/MelbourneReminder
Whether your path is the wellness of the mind, wellness of the body or you are on a spiritual journey, join us for a day of gentle inquiry and discover Unfolding Wisdom at the annual SWell Conference. This year, listen for unfolding wisdom of the old ways, and learn the arts of connecting, healing, belonging and becoming in community. Share this exploration, creativity, celebration, art and community as we come together.
What is wisdom and how do we connect with it? Perhaps we already live with wisdom that simply needs illumination. Let’s peel back the layers that obscure wisdom and listen through silence, meditation and prayer. Let’s share experiences, connection with nature, each other and the Divine. This festival will draw together many cultures, traditions and healing modalities that will explore how we can live more fully in the modern world.
We are also excited at to be hosting artworks from a number of local artists in an ''Unfolding Wisdom" themed exhibition which will be on display at the SWell Centre from October 18th - Mid November.
This year, SWell is thrilled to welcome indigenous performing artist Nancy Bates to perform and speak at our conference. Nancy is an artist to watch in 2019, launching the highly anticipated collaborative album 'FOR YOUR LOVE', recorded with The Baker Suite. Four years touring with Archie Roach as backing vocalist, guitarist and support act has influenced her song writing, fostering a deep maturity in her voice and her storytelling. Roach considers Nancy to be one of the most gifted emerging singer-songwriters in Australia today. Few artists have the courage to be as vulnerable and authentic in performing as Nancy. She ‘empties her cup’ twice for her audience…they walk away overflowing.
Nancy has performed internationally in France, the UK and New Zealand and nationally at major music and arts festivals including Woodford Folk Festival, Sydney Festival and WOMADelaide. She has spent much of 2018 working more locally, including running song writing workshops in the Adelaide Women’s Prison and developing collaborative work with other female songwriters including Tara Carragher, Emily Davis and Jessica Wishart.
