About BrisAsia

 

Returning in February 2022 for its 10th year, BrisAsia Festival brings together a program that celebrates a dynamic fusion of Asian art, culture and cuisine across more than 50 events. The program will feature live performances by internationally acclaimed artists, outdoor festivities and intimate cultural encounters across traditional and contemporary art forms.

 

The theme for this year is ‘connection through culture’ and is a call to action to reach out to others, participate and be part of Brisbane’s evolving cultural story. Over three weeks from 1-20 February, audiences can experience the transformative power of live performance, learn and grow through immersive workshops and travel the length and breadth of Asia across the incredibly packed festival program that has something for everyone.

About Producers

 

Sounds Across Oceans (SAO) is a not-for-profit arts organisation established in 2015 to redress educational inequities, promote diversity and build bridges between cultures and communities. The organisation has established a unique creative philosophy inspired by both ancient and contemporary modes of practice and generating a holistic approach to arts engagement that has become synonymous with SAO programs, events and festivals. At the heart of the SAO approach is the understanding that all people have a creative soul, and this should be nurtured to support a full, flourishing life. Informed by research into intercultural and interdisciplinary collaboration, arts health and wellbeing and education, SAO has developed a consultative ethos of collaboration and partnership development, working closely with other arts organisations, schools and universities, business and government to design and deliver creative experiences that uplift, inspire and connect people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures.
