The Thornbury Local – 635 High Street Thornbury

PLEASE NOTE: We’re starting our sessions earlier from now on. Arrive at 6:00 pm for a 6:30 start. Thank you!

Casa Cultura’s Meet-Ups are an informal gathering where we can network, share projects and ideas, kick off collaborations and find support in a community, while having a relaxed drink in good company (perhaps a guitar comes out at some point too!).

At the same time, these get-togethers will contribute with some capacity building every month. We will have a guest or two presenting their expertise in a 30-minute bracket at the beginning of the night addressing a specific topic of interest to the arts community.

This month we welcome Trinidad Estay from Multicultural Arts Victoria, to present the portfolio of projects that are in course and in planning for the next 12 months, and to communicate all the opportunities for participation (artists, technical crew and volunteers) that exist in connection to these projects.

Multicultural Arts Victoria Inc. (MAV) has evolved over four decades into one of Australia’s most important bodies for the discovery, development and promotion of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) contemporary art, heritage and cultural expression. Over 1 million participants are engaged in their programs which include long-term initiatives for career development and creative capacity building for over 2,000 artists and 500 communities from diverse and emerging backgrounds.

The organisation also offers expertise in audience development, community engagement and artistic excellence with CALD communities.

Trinidad Estay is a Chilean born visual artist. She joined Multicultural Arts Victoria in 2012 and manages the organisation’s range of cultural leadership programs and visual arts projects. Prior to moving to Australia, she worked in education and audience development at the Museum of Contemporary Arts of Santiago, MAC, Gabriela Mistral Culture Centre (GAM), and was a grant recipient for an internship at Tate Liverpool in Arts & Education.
