CFP Super Diversity and Multiculturalism: SIETAR Australasia (Cairns, Australia)

Super Diversity and Multiculturalism: Managing and understanding diversity and culture at home and abroad
16-18 October 2015
Cairns, Queensland, AUSTRALIA

We invite theoretical and practical contributions questioning all forms of multiculturalism from dance, art to indigenous cultural sovereignty. This represents a small sample of the topics we would like to discuss. This is an inter-disciplinary conference.

Our inaugural conference is about multiculturalism locally and globally. We would like to encourage and promote a deeper dialogue about multitudes of cultures co-existing without one dominating any of them. This is the ideal of multiculturalism we are aiming to explore in our conference: How to share without being subsumed.

We encourage all our participants to explore these ideas, to demonstrate and to find new ways to unite cultures in their presentations, workshops, or film, or any other performing art medium. We would like to explore the notion of how we can all co-exist and share our different cultures, but without being subsumed into one another’s culture. So join us in sharing your culture with my culture for us to create our culture together.
