The 35th Society for Animation Studies Conference will be hosted at the University of New South Wales, Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture in Sydney (Australia) from July 1st to July 4th, 2024 and its theme will be “Animating Change”.

The conference theme, “Animating Change”, aims to shed light on the power of animation in representing and amplifying voices and stories. Indeed, the conference wishes to explore in particular, how animation can break away from traditional narratives and forms and embrace a more inclusive and progressive approach. The conference draws upon animation’s ability to comment on political issues, social inequalities, or environmental concerns and its effectiveness in conveying complex messages.

We encourage all SAS members to join us in Sydney following the isolation of the global pandemic and so this year we are running in-person sessions only. For access and accessible requirements, please contact the conference chairs:


Registration is now live on the conference web page. The early bird deadline is April 19th, 2024.

Please note that, as of the time of the Conference, you will have to be a member of the SAS.
