Fotis Kapetopoulos, consultant with Kape Communications, will discuss cultural brokerage. Cultural brokerage is the approach employed by Dr Richard Kurin, the director of the Centre for Cultural Programs, Smithsonian Institution. It is a tool of presentation, audience development and developing international exchange in the arts. Fotis, in his various capacities such as ex-director of Multicultural Arts Victoria, has produced and promoted numerous multicultural arts and cultural programs. He assisted artists in securing funding and has developed projects working as a cultural broker between communities, institutions and artists in national and international environments. Fotis will also discuss Who Goes There?, a 2004 report on three multicultural audience case studies conducted by Kape Communications for the Australia Council.
