ANIMATISM is an exchange of creative ideas and artistic action between Melbourne and 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.
Silent Army publications were distributed in East Timor while on exchange in 2013 and in 2014 as part of Arte Publiku. Friendships grew through many cross cultural experiences and collaborations continue today.
