100+ Voices Speak


Contemporary Asian Australian Performance (CAAP) is a national cultural leader in presenting contemporary Asian Australian stories.

Our stories are diverse and complex.

Our stories come from uniquely personal experiences, but resonate with many.

Our stories are for everyone.

Our activities and projects develop, nurture and champion Asian Australian artists to take their place on the main stages nationally and internationally.

A resident company of Carriageworks, our work has resulted in shows in Sydney, Adelaide, Darwin, as well as AsiaTOPA and OzAsia festivals, and in the seasons of major theatre companies such as Sydney Theatre Company and Belvoir, yet we remain relatively unknown as the powerhouse behind these stories.

Please help us magnify our profile by making a tax-deductible donation to one of our giving programs. Your contribution will support us to achieve much greater reach and impact.

Our goal is to raise $25,000 by 31 May 2020. Why? Because if we reach the target, every dollar will be matched dollar by Creative Partnerships Australia’s Plus1 Program, which means your support has double impact!

On Thursday 14 November, we will be launching our giving campaign titled 100+ Voices Speak, at CAAP's end of year event, the Longhouse: Works in Progress at Carriageworks. See brand new works-in-progress by 4 exciting Asian Australian artists, grab some nibbles and drinks, and celebrate your Asian Australian performance community. We do hope to see you there.
