Longhouse Goes Global
COVID has forever changed the way we think about borders and connection, and that's had a huge impact on the performing arts. In CAAP's next Longhouse, we explore the reality for artists in Australia and China who want to connect and collaborate.
In this current climate, where cross-cultural interaction matters more than ever, what opportunities are available for building capacity, sharing knowledge, artistic exchange and collaboration? What are the challenges, best practices, and success stories?
Join Longhouse Co-ordinator Jennifer Wong in this timely and insightful online conversation with (L-R):
- Bergen-based performance curator Wang Jingyi
- Naarm (Melbourne)-based multidisciplinary artist Roshelle Fong
- Beijing-based theatre director Wang Chong.
Monday 7 June 6pm-7.30pm (AEST)
