|There's No Place Like Home|
Kultour is presenting a session titled There's No Place Like Home at The New Normal, this year's title for APACA's annual conference which will be held from 29 August until 1 September 2016 at Arts Centre Melbourne.
There’s No Place Like Home
Venue: Pavilion Foyer, Arts Centre Melbourne
Time: Wed 31 Aug, 3-4pm
Other speakers in the session include Jiva Parthipan (STARTTS), Tania Cañas (RISE :Refugees Survivors and Ex-detainees), Osamah Sami and Rani Pramesti.
Artists from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds are involuntarily displaced from their homes, thrust into a new world and expected to create a new normal. How does this new normal fit in with their arts practice, their ideas of a new home and notions of belonging? And what influence have refugee artists had on the broader Australian arts landscape? In the current conservative funding environment, where asylum seekers are bound by work right limitations, can they also create arts practices that are sustainable?
