About this Event

Join the live stream on Monday night! Our in-person tickets have sold out, but you can book your free live-stream ticket to get a reminder.

Four Wellington-based creatives, each with heritage ties to cultures across the Asian Diaspora, will dive into the politics of identity, representation, and what it means to be “Asian” in 21st Century Aotearoa New Zealand.

Co-hosted by Future Dragonz Wellington (Wellington Chinese Association) and New Zealand Asian Leaders, the event showcases Pan-Asian creatives, Prabha Ravi QSM JP (Founder of Natraj School of Dance), Rose Lu (author of All Who Live on Islands), Bobby Stannard (PikPok animator and short filmmaker), and Vanessa Mei Crofskey (Director of Enjoy Gallery). It will be chaired by Chelsea Wong (musician, IP lawyer) of FDW and NZAL.

Each panellist will consider the question “What is your ‘voice’ as a Pan-Asian Creative and why is it important?” Through sharing experiences and learnings, this event will bring to light some of the challenges encountered and ongoing mahi required for a more inclusive and diverse society that celebrates all cultures, including Pan-Asians.

Shifting the Scene: a Pan-Asian Creatives Panel Discussion on Cultural Identity and Representation is a safe space for discussion and we welcome anyone who is interested to be witness to the conversation.
