Report from APECS Information Meeting and Polar Cinema in Australia
On 3 June 2010 at the Flinders University Central Library in Adelaide, Australia, 30 people attended an APECS information meeting and movie night.
This event was a ‘first run’ at pushing APECS on the Flinders campus. Event advertising was sent to all three Adelaide campuses (University of South Australia, University of Adelaide, Flinders University) but the remoteness of the Flinders campus really restricted this event to Flinders students (specifically those in the Archaeology and Screen and Media departments).
The event was a brief introduction to APECS by Emily Jateff, APECS' Polar Archeology Discipline Coordinator, followed by an introduction and screening of Ed Powell’s polar film From Tall Grass to Tundra. Ed and his assistant Leila Serjevic answered questions following the screening.
This event was a test to gauge on-campus interest in polar activities.
