Expert Webinar: 'Creative Networks: Fostering links between Australia and Germany in the Performing Arts'

Australia and Germany enjoy strong and diverse cultural links, including in the dynamic performing arts sector. In September 2020, during the inaugural episode of our ‘Creative Networks’ webinar series, we heard creatives and institutions in dance, theatre and music reflect on how their work landscapes have changed in a COVID-19 environment, and how programming looks in the months ahead. Our panel of experts and artists in the performing arts sector, included: Nora Gatewood-Kurz, Senate Department for Culture and Europe, Berlin, Stefan Schmidtke, Program Director, Theater der Welt, Peter Scollin, Platypus Theater Berlin, Paul White, dancer and choreographer and Melanie Jame Wolf, performance and video artist.  The webinar was moderated by Mala Ghedia, filmmaker / actress.
