CARRIAGEWORKS AND CONTEMPORARY ASIAN AUSTRALIAN PERFORMANCE PRESENT
In some traditional societies, the Longhouse is the meeting place where the village gathers to share stories and bond as a community. CAAP’s Longhouse Networking Program combines talks, performances, masterclasses and workshops. All artists and arts workers interested in exploring Asian Australian themes through contemporary performance are welcome to attend and get involved. The Longhouse returns for 2017 at CAAP’S new home, Carriageworks. To get things off to a lively start, the conversation we have to have….
DIVERSITY IS A WHITE WORD
At the beginning of this year, artist and academic Tania Canas published an article for Artshub titled, Diversity is a White Word. Very quickly, it gained traction over social media, igniting debate and support. Our first Longhouse of 2017 is dedicated to unpacking and discussing – as a community – the provocative ideas in the article. What do you think? What is your experience? What are your questions? Joining the conversation are three arts leaders whose organisations have the potential to play an important role in this debate: Tim Roseman (Playwriting Australia), Lena Nahlous (Diversity Arts Australia) and Kate Cherry (CEO, NIDA). The evening will be facilitated by Jenevieve Chang.
The discussion will be followed by the launch of the 2017 Longhouse Program. Refreshments will be served afterwards – so the conversation can continue.
