CAAP Longhouse and MTC

CAAP’s Longhouse is a networking and information sharing program that has been building a solid and thriving Asian Australian performance community in NSW since 2015. Now CAAP invites members of the Victoria industry to attend Melbourne’s first Longhouse to be hosted by MTC. Four of Melbourne’s most progressive and dynamic storytellers will be joining the gathering to share their experiences within the industry in VIC and take part in a conversation about the current state of diversity and representation on our stages and screens.

The panel discussion, including audio of questions and comments from the audience, will be live-streamed on CAAP’s Facebook page.

Guest speakers:
KIM HO (The Language of Love, Mirror’s Edge – Winner 2017 Patrick White Playwright’s Award)
MICHELE LEE (Going Down, Rice - Winner 2018 Australian Writer’s Guild Award, Victorian Premier’s Literary Award)
