Following on from the success of Body Pacifica in 2010, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is proud to present Niu Warrior. The Niu Warrior program is composed of exhibitions, performances, workshops and special events created by a selection of artists from the Pacific Rim. Niu Warrior identifies these artists as ‘modern warriors’, using art to promote inter-personal and cross-cultural understanding, reconciliation, bravery and leadership. Modern warriors stand in direct contrast to behaviours of violence, alienation, colonialism and racism.
An essential element aspect of the Niu Warrior program is the inclusion of urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island artists who through their own sophisticated art practices embrace the progress of cultural understanding. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people of the Pacific Rim share with Pacific Islanders an affinity with the natural resources of the land. This is a basic tenant of respect that our cultures accord with each other.
Includes 50 various Pacific and NZ artists
