This event is part of our Future-Proof program presented by Blacktown Arts and Settlement Services International (SSI)

Through its self-funded Arts & Culture program, Settlement Services International (SSI) has connected hundreds of newcomer artists with opportunities to network, perform, exhibit or otherwise engage and participate in artistic activities. SSI aims to facilitate diverse artistic expression and cultural participation by nurturing artists and cultural practitioners from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through its arts funding and advisory body, the Australian Council for the Arts. SSI have been working in partnership with Blacktown Arts during the creative development and showcase stages to present this program. The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre is an initiative of Blacktown City Council supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.

The Future-Proof showcase is a month-long, multi-artform experience for audiences. It is a unique interpretation of the many facets of life as new Australian artists.
