We’ve hit 2020. There are no hover-boards and even less space food. What we seem to have instead is more fire, more flood, more connection and yet the same distance.

This season at Arts House reflects all the opportunity and challenge of those closer connections we busily create, every day. Connections between culture, identity, technology, art, politics and philosophy.

We are proud to present the new works of artists that connect China, Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan and across Australia as part of Season 1. In their meeting, they create and offer an energy that I believe is sustaining for a creative city like Melbourne. And their energy is infectious, so if you need an injection: come feel it at Arts House.
