Workshop for Teachers and Educators by artist and educator Kelly Reedy
- SYNOPSIS -
Taking inspiration from the novel Arus Balik (1995) by Indonesian author Pramoedya Ananta Toer, this workshop will examine how the turning of historical tides form our personal and collective identities. The work of six artists, Ade Darmawan (Indonesia), ila (Singapore), Zac Langdon-Pole (New Zealand/Germany), Shubigi Rao (India/Singapore), Lucy Raven (United States) and Melati Suryodarmo (Indonesia) will guide and challenge us on this journey, probing how social, geopolitical, religious, and cultural transitions in this region have influenced our concept of who we are, where we come from, and where we are going.

as an artist and educator. She holds a BFA in Fine Art (University of Wisconsin,
