International Gambling Conference 2018

2th February - 14th February

Australasian Association for Theatre,

Drama and Performance Studies (ADSA) Conference

27th June - 30th June 2017

"Allow me to express my gratitude for your tremendous contribution to this year’s Australasian Association for Theatre, Drama and Performance Studies (ADSA) conference (27-30 June). It’s hard to imagine how little we knew of what we were getting into when we began the journey over a year ago. You’ve kept us steady-on throughout, not simply managing the logistics and holding the budget, turning them from hugely daunting prospects into ordinary business, but also helping us to sustain the integrity of the event.
