Culture Collective’s International Perspectives event series explores what experiences from community-rooted work around the world might teach us about creative projects here in Scotland.

The International Perspectives series is an opportunity to meet organisations and practitioners working in community-led creative projects across the world. Featuring performance, discussion and open Q&As, these events aim to widen our perspectives and introduce new approaches to community, creativity and social change.

For Culture Collective’s first International Perspectives event in April 2022, we were joined by Arte Moris, a Fine Art School, Cultural Centre and Art Community based in Dili, East Timor. Chaired by Asha Trivedy from Culture Collective project Art27, we spoke with Iliwatu Danabere and other Arte Moris artists about topics ranging from the impacts of conflict to how to build a creative community.
