Borak Arts Series


  • 27 Aug 2016 - 28 Aug 2016


  • 09:00 AM - 06:00 PM


St Giles Wembley Hotel



Borak Arts Series returns this 27 & 28 August and continues to break boundaries and strengthen relationships across ASEAN communities via this year’s theme - Bringing Arts Closer to Home.


We engage artists and creative workers in order for them to improve and strengthen the communities in which we call our home. We examine the role of the arts in conflict resolution and recovery. We dissect the different facets of communities to understand how creativity unleashes internal strength, voice, self-expression and a sense of belonging in addition to discussing social impact and evaluating output.

The conference brings together artistes, presenters/producers, intermediaries, funders and include keynote addresses, panel discussions, round robin sessions, networking platforms and performances. To bring ASEAN arts closer amongst ourselves and also to the world, Borak Arts Series will feature one-on-one meetings with festival directors/venue programmers and Pitchpad ASEAN. This year’s market updates include India and Singapore.
