DUE WEST ARTS FESTIVAL–The End/Future of History

November 15 - November 24

Footscray Community Arts Centre is producing a community Festival in Melbourne’s West called the Due West Arts Festival from the 15 – 24 November 2019. It’s a 10 day festival highlighting the Voice, Sound and Music of the communities of the West. One of them is EVERYTHING THAT EXISTS IN THE CURRENT. It explores the emotional and social implications of moving between different states of being. When the flow of our existence is interrupted and relocated, the context shifts and everything we knew then is no longer. Expanding the transitional state where the end meets the beginning, where nostalgia morphs into memory, where words become gestures – the exhibition asks: where are the disruptions of time and their residue? Curated by Nikki Lam, with artists Anindita Banerjee, Shivanjani Lal, Ellen YG Son, Cyrus Tang, and Siying Zhou, EVERYTHING THAT EXISTS IN THE CURRENT will be installed at multiple sites in…

Due West Arts Festival — Footscray By Night (a second call)

November 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm AEDT

FOOTSCRAY BY NIGHT (A SECOND CALL) by Hoang Tran Nguyen restages a community arts project first mounted with David Nguyen as part of Big West Festival 2011. Inspired by the Paris By Night cabaret shows, popular in the Vietnamese diaspora, a series of karaoke videos were produced celebrating the communities associated with Little Saigon Shopping Centre. Since the fire of 2016 that devastated Little Saigon, the center of gravity for the Vietnamese community has shifted, raising questions about gentrification, the reclamation of space and what these discussions mean in a (de)colonial context. Revisiting the project relocates it to a new meeting point, bringing in dialogue with local Indigenous community practitioners of Melbourne’s West to explore the conversation of dispossession and dislocation between migrant and Indigenous communities. Join FOOTSCRAY BY NIGHT (A SECOND CALL) for an evening of song, performance, and video in Nicholson Street. Featuring Robbie Bundle and Brian Morley,…
