Australian creative excellence front stage in China

Asialink Arts presented two exceptional Australian companies at the forefront of creating immersive visitor experiences and creative environments at Boao Culture and Creativity Week in China.

Asialink Arts was invited to curate and present an Australian presence at the 2020 Boao Culture and Creativity Week, held at the Boao Forum for Asia in Hainan Province from November 14th to 20th, 2020. Boao Culture and Creativity Week promotes the development of cultural tourism, culture creativity, and rural innovation projects through an ‘empowering platform focused on practice’. An objective was to integrate industry expertise and experience with research and provide a place for ideas and innovations to converge.

Watch Tony Holzner (Art Processors) and James Boyce (Grumpy Sailor) in conversation with Dr Pippa Dickson exploring their inspirations, approaches, techniques and what they believe is the next frontier for their work locally and globally.
