Diversity Arts Australia (DARTS) invites 20 artists and independent arts workers to participate in Beyond Tick Boxes: a symposium on cultural diversity in the arts.

To apply for a place, please send us an Expression of Interest:

This symposium will facilitate dialogue between artists, companies, creators, producers, organisations and institutions through a series of Q&A-style panels, small interactive breakouts, and by showcasing provocative screen works. The outcomes of the day will be captured in a written report and series of short films and podcasts, which will be distributed widely and feed into future research and policy frameworks.

Join representatives from companies such as the Australia Council for the Arts, Australian Film Television and Radio School, Blacktown Arts Centre, Cope Street Collective, Create NSW, CuriousWorks, Contemporary Asian Australian Performance, Moogahlin Performing Arts, Urban Theatre Projects, Sydney Theatre Company, the Australian Human Rights Commission and many others.

Since 2013, DARTS has held a series of national “Gatherings” across Australia to gain a deeper understanding of the issues and barriers to diversity and inclusion in the creative sector and to identify strategies for change. This is the final in this series of events. Diversity Arts Australia advocates for a creative sector in which artists, producers, leaders and audiences reflect the complex rich diversity of our local and global communities.

Numbers will be kept small (100 people) to ensure strategic and in-depth discussions.

Venue: Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, 1 Powerhouse Rd, Casula
Date: Thursday 29 June
Time: 9am – 6pm

For enquiries, please email kevin.bathman@diversityarts.org.au

This event will be live streamed and people who can’t attend are able to join in the conversation via Google HangOut, http://bit.ly/beyondtickboxes



We will also be able to support Auslan interpreting, a language other than English interpreting and most accessibility requirements.
