Call for artists

FORMAS DE VIDA
Latin American artists group exhibition

HOLA MELBOURNE opens with the art exhibitions “Formas de vida”. Latin American artists based in Australia will present their visions, perspectives, and experiences relating to the complex theme of ‘global environment’.

 

WHAT HOLA MELBOURNE IS

By 2017,   4Diverse   as a local community organisation, had noticed the dramatic increase of the Latin-American community in Port Phillip in recent years. Based on this observation, we decided to run the    Latin American Art Exhibition 2018      which took place in March 2018.  This event was a great opportunity for us as organisation to connect to the local community, and gain a sense of what is happening locally in Latin American art and culture.  The success of the first edition of this initiative encourages us to present a wider program, as the    HOLA MELBOURNE! FESTIVAL OF LATIN AMERICAN CULTURE AND IDEAS - 2019.   This program is much more ambitious regarding the range and scope. 4Diverse will create interactive performances that involve local visual artists, musicians, writers, academics and dancers to actively engage the community.  At   HOLA MELBOURNE! 2019 ,  we aim to make activities as participatory as possible, involving the audiences with artists and providing opportunities for people to be involved in the creation of art, music and dance and reflection on contemporary issues related to Latin American countries and the presence of Latin American people in Australia.
