About the logo

The logo for the WCA ABC 2019 conference refers to travel and place. The compass points acknowledge that we have all traveled to this place, Aotearoa/New Zealand either recently or via our ancestors, with the first people arriving on these shores around 1000AD. The points are tilted as we look towards communicating in a world where we can tip the axis of divisions between the global north and global south. The stars refer to place and the Matariki cluster of stars that start to appear in our skies in late May or early June and mark the beginning of the Māori New Year.
