Sipakatuo: Glorify One Another, an initiative to connect screen and sound practitioners across Sulawesi and Australia, make collaborative work, and build a sustainable creative relationship.
Born from a shared love and curiosity for the moving image and audiovisual encounters, Sipakatuo is an exchange programme that proposes a space for cross-cultural dialogue and creative collaboration. To learn from each other, teach one another, to change and grow together.
The exchange comprises collaborative creation, knowledge-sharing and capacity-building workshops, interviews with artists, filmmakers and cultural agents across Australia and Indonesia and in-depth research related to the work produced.
An examination, through interviews and conversations, of the Australian and Indonesian independent screen communities and the development of ideas on how we can work together to bolster both.
