We are very fortunate to have Dr Priya Srinivasan, an Indian classical dancer and researcher at Melbourne University visiting CDU next week.

The purpose of the visit is to seek advice and participation of Indigenous women in particular in a co-creation of an arts production as a convergence of Indigenous and Indian traditional art.

This is the continuation of her last year's project on Serpent Dreaming which won an Australia India Council Grant and Priya and her team along with the Gunditjmara counterparts.

Here is the link to the Serpent Dreaming performance by a team comprising Indian artists and the Gunditjmara collaborators.
