ANIMATISM is a project delivering artistic action and creative ideas between Melbourne and East Timor.

ANIMATISM is a creative platform developing new narratives with East Timor, led by East Timor’s free art school, Arte Moris and Melbourne based artists and creative producers.

The project develops spaces for intergenerational cultural exchange and dialogue around artistic resilience, peace and the creative articulation of a unified vision of contemporary East Timor.

The project advocates for creative ways to bring Australians and East Timorese together in partnership, deepening cross-cultural understanding across the Asia-Pacific region, developing new creative works for Australian and East Timorese audiences and broadening artistic networks between the two countries.

It is a project that builds knowledge in the region about life through art.

Why this project is important

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.
