Remote Ops

Buy tickets online now

An unconference for anyone who wants to get stuff done outback.

Join Remote Ops to meet and converse with other people working on the edge. Remote Australia has plenty of isolation, space and openness to achieve new things. Here we can look both inwards to Australian practice and outwards to the future, new horizons and away from ‘normal’ ways of thinking and doing. Queer things happen out back; there is an abundance of weirdness, independence and strong self-reliance which supports trailblazing and experimentation. Remote operations are characterised by mixing, combining and sharing time and resources with diverse people in unique places, forming and working with dynamic combinations and teams.

The Remote Ops event uses a combination of structured presentations and scheduled open space sessions to ensure there is time for both provocations and conversations.

If this sounds like your thing, register here, places are limited.
