Lindy Hume | Restless Giant: Changing Cultural Values in Regional Australia03.02.2017
Join Lindy Hume in the presentation of her new paper Restless Giant: Changing Cultural Values in Regional Australia.
In this significant paper, Opera, theatre and festival director Lindy Hume, likens artistic innovation in small towns and communities to the stirrings of a restless giant: a rebellious counter-urban movement ready to make a profound impact on the national culture. As an artist living in regional Australia, she finds it an ideal place to develop new performance work, and argues that more flow and greater integration between the regional and metropolitan arts ecosystems could, over time, reshape Australia’s cultural identity.
