Event Details

Hear Eugenia Lim discuss her video, installation and participatory performance based art practice and recent projects on globalisation, diaspora and identity.

This webinar is suitable for visual art educators, and people interested in the intersection of art, globalisation and national identities.

  • OI.4 The arts and literature of Asia influence aesthetic and creative pursuits within Australia, the region and globally.
  • OI.5 Collaboration and engagement with the peoples of Asia support effective regional and global citizenship.
  • OI.6 Australia is part of the Asia region and our histories from ancient times to the present are linked.
  • OI.7 Australians play a significant role in social, cultural, political and economic developments in the Asia region.
  • OI.8 Australians of Asian heritage have influenced Australia’s history and continue to influence its dynamic culture and society.

Please bring:

  • Questions to discuss with Eugenia about her work. You will have the option to provide these to Flying Arts in advance of the webinar.
