INTRODUCTION: Welcoming, Introducing, Engaging


'Lens on Health' was presented in three parts: Roundtable, Microscopes, and Virtual Journey.
Acknowledgement of Country was given by UTS Life Scientist Dr Sean Walsh,and followed by Roundtable Introductions and Discussion led by Dr Megan Williams,Senior Lecturer and Head of the Indigenous Health Discipline at the Graduate School of Health at UTS. Megan invited everyone (including the sound recordists and photojournalist) to say who we are, where we're from, and our relationship to Aboriginal Australia. Stimulus for discussion was a videoof marine microbial ecologist Dr Andrew Davidson explaining connectivity in the Antarctic ecosystem, that Megan recognised as reflecting the different ways we may participate in shaping the natural world.

Microscopist Sue Fenechand freshwater ecologists Anne Colvilleand Claire Sivesled everyone to look through microscopes and draw tiny living things found in local freshwater and saltwater systems.

UTS Software Engineer Dr Cat Kutay,UTS eResearch Support Analyst Michael Lynchand I led a Virtual Pedestrain's Journey in the UTS Data Arena, that we are developing to connect and generate stories that come from the land and ocean. Artist/scholars Darren Charlwood (University of Sydney) and Maddison Gibbs (UTS) worked with us on design and choreography for audience engagement.
