About Arts Diaspora
The word “diaspora”, from the Greek, means scattering of seeds. We chose the name “Arts Diaspora” to reflect the seeds which waves of immigrants to Australia have, and continue to, scatter and sow, enriching this already fertile landscape through diverse cultural and artistic expression. Arts Diaspora seeks to be active in the realm of the arts by providing opportunities for artists from diverse cultural, ethnic and linguistic backgrounds to share their work; and for audiences to be engaged, moved, inspired and educated, through promotion, production, co-ordination and collaboration of varying projects including concerts and educational workshops.
We have a peaceable and all-inclusive view of multicultural Australia and aim to foster understanding, appreciation and celebration of cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity – something we think is achievable through the artistic experience.
All Arts Diaspora pursuits are for the public’s enjoyment and benefit. Arts Diaspora is a non-profit, incorporated organisation and a charitable institution with DGR staus. We rely on the generosity of volunteers, sponsors and donors to bring our ideas to fruition and encourage all those who see value in the work we do and wish to offer their support to contact us.
