Artist in Residence: Naavikaran

Naavikaran’s work creates platforms for accessible and safe storytelling for identities of various intersections and communities.

As Artist in Residence, they will develop events, workshops and performance-based responses to activate the In Transit exhibition by Filipino-Australian artist Rhanjell Villanueva. Presented in partnership with BrisAsia Stories as part of BrisAsia Festival 2022, the In Transit exhibition and residency aim to provide a platform for conversation and reflection, using themes of intersectionality, language, displacement and reclaiming history as an opportunity for growth and healing.

Naavikaran will examine ideas of belonging, diversity and community while keeping a firm eye towards the future. Their workshops will invite you to explore your identity beyond socially prescribed labels and political spheres, and to create beautiful and uninhibited work.
