BRING YOUR GAME Hip Hop Summit curated by artist Shigeyuki Kihara featuring international hip hop artists King Kapisi and Teremoana Rapley at Campbelltown Arts Centre, 13 January 2011.

BRING YOUR GAME Hip Hop Summit is an interdisciplinary project conceived and curated by artist and independent curator Shigeyuki Kihara which explores audience participation through public discussions, live music performance, mentoring and workshops and video documentation.

BRING YOUR GAME Hip Hop Summit also includes workshops personally led by international hip hop artist King Kapisi and Teremoana Rapley to eventuate into a live ‘n’ direct concert to officially launch the Edge of Elsewhere exhibition held at Campbelltown Arts Centre on 14 January 2011 as part of Sydney Festival.

The documentation of BRING YOUR GAME through video installations will be presented as part of the Edge of Elsewhere exhibition. The documentation will focus on the highlights of the workshops and live ‘n’ direct performance together with interviews from the participants.

Talofa lava and Greetings,

I’m currently based in Sydney attending various meetings in relation to the upcoming Edge of Elsewhere visual arts program for Sydney Festival 2011 and 2012, co-curated by Gallery 4a Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Campbelltown Arts Centre, Sydney, Australia.

Edge of Elsewhere is a major three-year project with the Sydney Festival involving invited artists creating work in partnership with Sydney communities. This project involves me working in my capacity as an artist, curator and producer.

This weekend I will be volunteering at the Boomalli Australian Aboriginal Artists Co Operative art auction gala to help keep the grassroots community centre open and functioning for the indigenous community in Sydney.

I will start my residency with Multicultural Arts Victoria in the next two weeks, from 13 May until 24 June 2010. More events will be triggered during my residency which will be sent to you in the next couple of weeks.
