The year was 2020, and the Australian arts sector was still struggling to understand the real meaning of diversity. Refugee voices in mainstream arts were almost non-existent, and little did we know, a pandemic would turn the world upside-down.

Despite this challenging scenario, eight artists embarked on an immersive and artistic professional development program exploring their refugee experiences. Their goal – to maximise opportunities within the Australian arts sector.

365 days later, the Future-Proof showcase is their unique interpretation of the many facets of life as new Australian artists. Find out more about individual artists and their works which will be showcased in this exhibition below.

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 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.
