Niu Warrior

Niu Warrior
24 September – 4 December 2011
Casula Powerhouse
Casula, NSW, Australia

Following on from the success of Body Pacifica in 2010, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre presents Niu Warrior.

Niu Warrior features artists from the Pacific Rim – ‘modern warriors’, who use their art to promote inter-personal and cross-cultural understanding, reconciliation, bravery and leadership. Modern warriors stand in direct contrast to behaviours of violence, alienation, colonialism and racism.

An essential element aspect of the Niu Warrior program is the inclusion of urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island artists who through their own sophisticated art practices embrace the progress of cultural understanding.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people of the Pacific Rim share with Pacific Islanders an affinity with the natural resources of the land.  This is a basic tenant of respect that our cultures accord with each other.

The programme kicks off this weekend with a festival – marketi, food, music, arts and crafts, ten exhibitions, three theatre performances and more.
