Territory artists on world stage
Maningrida visual artist Janet Marawarr and Paiwan dancer and choreographer Aulu Tjibulangan have been announced as the successful recipients of the 2019 Taiwan-Australia Indigenous Artist in Residence program.
The program promotes the unique cultures and histories within Australia and Taiwan and provides an opportunity for cultural exchange between First Nations’ arts practitioners with a six week residency in each country.
Paiwan dancer and choreographer Aulu Tjibulangan will be in Darwin from August 2019 to collaborate with Australian Indigenous performing artists and further develop his choreographic work.
Maningrida textile design artist and bark painter Janet Marawarr is deeply connected to place and country and will be sharing this connection with other First Nations women through lectures and workshops during her six week residency in Rinari, Southern Taiwan in October 2019.
The program is made possible with support from the NT Government through Arts NT, the Taiwan Indigenous Peoples Cultural Development Centre and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
