Performance and discussion: Long Pasts, Possible Futures of South Asian Australian Art
Sat 21 Sept (2.00 pm – 5.00 pm) Curated by Priya Srinivasan and Hari Sivanesan, Long Pasts, Possible Futures of South Asian Australian Art considers the history of South Asian art in mainstream and community settings for the last 40 years and explores its future in Melbourne. Given Melbourne’s significant population of South Asian performing arts schools and emerging artists, the event asks what is at stake, how can South Asian arts be funded and supported, and what are the roles of community, government and the private sector?
