Reframe your professional practice with Emele Ugavule
This workshop is for arts workers who are interested in building language and skills around nurturing the kaupapa (principles and ideas) that guide the vā (sacred space that balances relationships in harmony) embedded in organisational arts spaces. These workshops are especially designed for general managers, producers, executives and directors both independent or working within a company structure.
As we see the increase of intercultural works grace Australia’s theatre stages, there must be an increase in safe and ethical frameworks of engagement with artists and stories from Cultural and Linguistically diverse backgrounds. You are invited to investigate your own process as a practitioner, to unpack, learn, and exchange with like-minded peers through talanoa (sharing knowledge through conversation). Topics covered will include challenging the history and meaning of intercultural theatre, translating meaningful community engagement into audience engagement, carving out sustainable pathways for emerging First Nations & Culturally and Linguistically Diverse artists, and prioritising self-determination for them within colonial infrastructure.
