The artwork used for Swinburne’s Reconciliation Action Plan is called "Gathering Knowledge" by artist Arbup Ash Peters. He is a Wurundjeri/Taungurong man, local artist and direct descendent of Coranderrk.

The 2017 Swinburne Indigenous Studies Symposium is open to all Swinburne Higher Education and PAVE staff and HDR students.

Including sessions on Indigenous teaching and learning, and research, this one-day event will feature keynote presentations from leading Indigenous academics as well as panel sessions involving a number of Swinburne staff. The Symposium will contribute to the implementation of Swinburne's Reconciliation Action Plan, assist in fostering a culture of Indigenous teaching and learning, and research, and assist staff to develop skills and understandings regarding Indigenous teaching and learning, knowledge, and research.

The Symposium will discuss this engagement in relation to a wide range of disciplines, including arts, business, design, education, health, humanities, law, and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
