Understanding culture in a global context with Tania Cañas

Tania Cañas is a Melbourne-based arts professional with experience in performance, cultural development, events, communication and research. She is also the arts director of RISE Refugees, the first organisation established in Australia by refugees for refugees. She joined us at Queen’s University Belfast for a lunchtime talk with Andrea Montgomery, Artistic Director of Terra Nova on ‘Understanding Culture in a Global Context’. The event was supported jointly through Theatre Forum.

Tania explored  the role of the cultural sector in generating and supporting multiplicity within the contemporary global context. In conversation, she and Andrea discussed how the cultural sector might work differently to represent the diverse social, cultural and political narratives of our time. Here her talk and see her presentation below. Tania also wrote a reflection on the focus of our network you can read here.

This public event was coordinated by Ali FitzGibbon and took place in association with Terra Nova Productions as part of their tenth birthday programme.
