International exchange: Asialink Arts Global Project Space

In July 2017 Asialink Arts launched a new initiative, Global Project Space (GPS), designed to reposition Asialink Arts as a key innovator of curated projects that provide opportunities for contemporary cultural engagement and development.

Under the new GPS initiative Asialink Arts and Next Wave have teamed up to invite a Japanese artist or collective to take up residence at Brunswick Mechanics Institute in 2018. This will form the second part of a reciprocal project, commencing with physical theatre performer and Next Wave alumni artist Skye Gellmann participating in the Awaji Arts Circus Festival on Awaji Island in Japan.

This project has been supported through a gift in the memory of Masa Hiraoka and Setsu Hiraoka and Yasuko Hiraoka Myer and by the Australian Government through the Australia Japan Foundation.
