Welcome Reception: Kyrgyzstan Artists | UNESCO Observatory of Arts Education

The Melbourne UNESCO Observatory of Arts Education provides a platform from which research and professional networks grow, not only within Melbourne, but across Australia and in collaboration with other Arts Observatories within South East Asia. The Observatory provides avenues for deep engagement and affiliation across this network, and serves as an umbrella for classroom teachers, arts educators, artists and researchers to collaboratively explore arts practice. As part of the Observatory, we host an artist-in-residence program and will be hosting ten artists and designers from Central Asia.

We invite you to welcome our Kyrgyz artists in residence into the arts and crafts community in Melbourne at this welcome reception that will include time to view the exhibition on display, and view a fashion parade of contemporary and traditional Kyrgyz wearable art.
