​​​​​​The power in cooperation: creating longevity in cross-cultural work - Singapore Arts Now

About this event

Asialink Arts and National Arts Council Singapore warmly invite you to join the artists and producers involved in Singapore Arts Now for the Tasmanian Creative Industries for an honest in-person discussion about the rewards and challenges of cross-cultural programs.


Supported by the Tasmanian Government and developed in partnership with Arts Tasmania, Singapore Arts Now is designed to support Tasmanian artists and arts organisations to research or create new work for new markets in Singapore and potentially Southeast Asia.


Facilitated by Asialink Arts Director Dr Pippa Dickson, hear from program participants Stephanie Jack (Tasmania) and Assembly 197 (Tasmania) with their Singaporean collaborators across production, dance and theatre as they discuss their curiosity and courage in forming new relationships to benefit their mutual practices. Speakers also include representatives of the National Arts Council Singapore and Arts Tasmania, Department of State Growth. The discussion will focus on the benefits and potential outcomes of international cooperation and artistic, market and audience development exchanges.
