TALK # 1 Arts Advocacy – We Are Essential
Arts Advocacy – We are Essential?
20 April 7:30pm AEST/ 5:30pm HKT via ZOOM
Our first discussion will unearth strategies for survival, advocacy and programming in the performing arts sector during the new normal we now find ourselves in. What are the new and emerging challenges and what has proven to be effective? In this current phase of recovery, we explore how our sector can continue to demonstrate and communicate value to the community and government.
Host, Rani Pramesti (Theatre Network Australia) is joined by panellists Lena Nahlous (Executive Director, Diversity Arts Australia), Helen So (Lead, Arts & Culture, Our Hong Kong Foundation), Kylie Bracknell [Kaarljilba Kaardn] (Independent Artist, Boomerang and Spear) & Winsome Chow (Chief Executive, Hong Kong Arts Development Council) to discuss shared concepts and frameworks that are effective across borders.
