Virtual Attendance

After a challenging two years we can’t wait to be together again in-person. But, as much as we would like to have our whole community join us, we understand that for some attending in-person may not be possible.

However, unfortunately, we will not be offering full virtual attendance for Coda22.

The logistical constraints of the program running over four days (with an exhibition and workshops in multiple spaces), combined with the significant cost to facilitate a virtual event, as well as time zone constraints (making it hard for our international friends to join in real-time) led us to believe that virtual attendance just won’t do the event justice.

In saying that, we will be considering live streaming some key sessions across the main two days for free on our channels. In addition to this, as always, all of our content from the event will be released for free throughout the year (via podcasts and videos).

Whether you can attend in-person or not, we hope to see you on socials and to share the love from Coda22.

If you would like to submit an EOI for the sessions and/or speakers that you’d like to see live streamed, please complete this form.

Code of Conduct

Please find below the Coda code of conduct for all faculty, delegates, sponsors, suppliers and volunteers.

We believe this code explicitly supports Coda values and have sought expert external opinion to formulate it.

As always with Coda we are eager to hear your opinions as well.

We are committed to providing a fun and safe environment for all participants to enjoy the meeting. The document includes ways to report any concerns participants may have.
