On Thursday evening 6- 8pm, there will be a Wellcome Party (complimentary drinks and snacks) at the Pool and Veranda Bar, Watermark Hotel.

Given the remarkable environment of the Gold Coast region, there will be opportunity for attendees to visit local attractions (e.g., surf beaches, rainforest treks, Movie World, Sea World, Wet'n'Wild, etc) and thus practice their motor skills.



Polyrhythm Performance/Workshop

We are also very excited about some entertainment envisaged for Sunday afternoon: a polyrhythmic extravaganza and workshop with the amazing Jaider De Oliviera, a Brazilian musician and one-man percussion and samba orchestra! Jaider uses electronic recording techniques to create, on stage, multiple rhythms using about 20 different instruments (percussion, guitars, birimbau, etc.). A subsequent participatory workshop is also not to be missed and will provide attendees with hands-on experience in bimanual movements, motor skill, and potentially unintentional coordination disorders!
