What's on at Kultour

KG2014 Goes on the road

“For me it was an important historical moment that not only brought artists together to discuss their practice but acted as a type of 'stocktake' of the state of the field , including a reminder of what had been forgotten.” Teresa Crea – KG2013

This August, national arts organisation, Kultour, commences the roll-out of its Gatherings 2014 (KG2014) program. A series of conceptual laboratories and associated forums for artists working in culturally and linguistically diverse contexts around Australia.

Kultour Conversations 2014

"Technically we are all free to express ourselves. But when the cultural representations mirrored back to us don't reflect our diversity, we lose our sense of meaning. This is what binds us into a community and affirms that we belong. Without it we are rendered non-existent." Teresa Crea, Co-founder of Doppio Teatro, Australia

Cultural cringe? A step forward

Kultour CEO, Julie Tipene-O'Toole, applauds the statement made by Playwriting Australia's Artistic Director, Tim Roseman, "lamenting the lack of diversity of Australian actors on our stages" and agrees that this is only part of the problem.

"Much of the current argument surrounding culturally diverse representation and participation in the arts is founded on anecdotal discourse. Kultour has initiated an important research partnership to identify the compelling information and statistical data to reinforce our position and advocate for change " said Ms Tipene-O'Toole. "This research partnership will initially focus on the evidence measures to help monitor the presence of cultural diversity in the arts in Australia – to establish the current baseline and move forward".
