The Australia India Institute continues to build on the quantity, quality and diversity of its events program. These events include public lectures, seminars, roundtables, networking events and cultural exhibitions. Our audiences are diverse and include students, academics, researchers, diaspora and the general public.
In light of COVID-19 restrictions, all our events are being held online during this time.
Our events range from discussions education, welfare, infrastructure and health to drop in chai sessions and cultural celebrations.
Some of the key set of events that we organise throughout the year can be found below :-
- KEYWORDS FOR INDIA SERIES
The Keywords for India series continues to bring thought leaders to Melbourne to discuss key issues in contemporary India.
- QUESTION MARKS SEMINAR SERIES
The Institute launched its Question Marks Seminar series in 2018 with a mandate to stimulate discussion on global issues through an Indian lens. The Series brings together academics from across the Australia-India boundary, as well as industry representatives and officials.
- DROP-IN CHAI
The Drop in Chai event continues to be a popular fixture on the Institute’s event calendar. Held on the first Friday of every month during semester times, this informal networking session offers South Asia enthusiasts an opportunity to meet and discuss current developments in the Australia India relationship, as well as their own work in this space.
- INDIA WEEK
Once a year the Institute holds its annual India Week – a celebration of contemporary Indian culture, thought, politics and society. It aims to promote mutual understanding between Australia and India, increase engagement with Indian culture and strengthen people-to-people links between our two countries.
