Since its inception more than a decade ago, OzAsia Festival has proven a fantastic vehicle to bring people together, through a range of community engagement opportunities. This year, nearly 2,000 community volunteers will take an active role in various programs. As part of Moon Lantern Parade, they will entertain thousands of revellers in Elder Park; they will perform at Lucky Dumpling Market; and they will take part in a range of innovative workshops focused on dance, art, craft and more.
The 2018 OzAsia Festival program is an outstanding representation of contemporary Asian arts and culture. In addition to theatre, dance, music and visual arts, the new long-term partnership with Jaipur Literature Festival ensures that literature will become a core component of the festival.
I encourage all South Australians to join in across OzAsia Festival 2018. I hope to see you there!
His Excellency The Honourable Hieu Van Le AC
Governor of South Australia
