Welcome to Spy Conference

Spies, Lies and the Art of Disguise is an online one-day conference for all high school students in Years 7-12. Are you prepared to dive into the secretive and mysterious world of espionage?

Every moment technology evolves making our every move easier to follow, the espionage game changes.

Taking place on Saturday, September 18 2021, delegates (high school students) in years 7 to 12 will go undercover to expose the secrets behind espionage and surveillance. Delegates from NSW, Northern Territory and Tasmania will travel through time between World Wars and into the modern era to discover the roles spies have had to play on national and international stages. The political intrigue of espionage continues to be prevalent today in a time where reignited historical tensions threaten to destabilise the international world order. As intelligence becomes automated and political relations grow increasingly complex, the ethical consequences of espionage begin to blur.

Spy Conference will be filled with riveting educational workshops, discussions, and interactive opportunities to learn alongside like-minded young people. By stepping into the shoes of spies and sleuths from the past and present, delegates will extend their critical thinking and build the skills needed to explore one of the most important ethical dilemmas of our time.
