_ Celebrating 1O years _


Adelaide Festival Centre is acknowledged internationally as a leader in Asian engagement and OzAsia Festival underpins our strategy to connect with Asia. Over the past 10 years, the Festival has consistently presented outstanding artistic works from across Asia. We are very proud of its legacy in creating opportunities for a mainstream celebration of Asian culture, and in doing so, touching and educating hundreds of thousands of South Australians. I would like to thank all involved in the making of OzAsia Festival – State, Federal and Local Governments, sponsors and partners, artists, community groups, presenting partners and staff. DOUGLAS GAUTIER AM

On behalf of the South Australian Government, I congratulate Adelaide Festival Centre on OzAsia Festival’s 10 year anniversary. The Festival has evolved into Australia’s leading annual contemporary arts festival focusing on Asia. It is held in the highest regard internationally and considered an important date in the Australian festival calendar. The Government recognises the ability of OzAsia Festival to influence the perception of South Australia across Asia and to develop cultural connections in the Asian region, which help develop economic relationships for our State. The Festival plays an important role in South Australia’s Asian engagement strategy and the Government are very pleased to support its ongoing growth. HON JACK SNELLING Minister for the Arts

CEO & Artistic Director Adelaide Festival Centre

I am honoured to have been Patron of the OzAsia Festival since its inception, 10 years ago. This unique Festival was started to provide opportunities for Australians to come together to celebrate and to appreciate Asia’s arts and culture. Public support for, and participation in, the Festival has been overwhelmingly positive, with more than 230,000 people attending last year’s performances and events.

ADELAIDE FESTIVAL CENTRE WARMLY WELCOMES ALL AUSTRALIAN AND INTERNATIONAL DELEGATES ATTENDING THE AAPPAC AND OTHER CONFERENCES DURING OZASIA FESTIVAL. We would like to acknowledge this is the traditional land of the Kaurna people and that we respect their spiritual relationship with their country. We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.The Kaurna people are the traditional owners of the land on which the Adelaide Festival Centre is located.

The 2016 program includes a wonderful gift to the public – a free, family friendly concert series that will present some of Asia’s finest contemporary bands. Held in Elder Park, the concerts will run over 10 nights, providing a fitting celebration for the Festival’s 10th anniversary. I encourage all South Australians to gather and join the spectacular array of events that make up OzAsia Festival 2016.

Lost in Translation: Transnational American Rock and its Map of Misreading in China Professor Teng Jimeng

An exploration into China’s popular culture through the lens of the politicised rock music movements. What are the relations between power and culture? How has the process of globalisation impacted and defined music movements in China? The relationship between music, society, government and industry reveals pivotal moments in the history of nations. Professor Teng Jimeng explores the history of these relations and their impact on the contemporary cultural landscape.

30 SEP BANQUET ROOM FREE 6pm (Fri) Duration 1hr

As the largest archipelago in the world, Indonesia has historically been a key maritime hub for trade and cultural exchange. How does contemporary culture embrace this history and the national ethos of “Unity in Diversity” with a vision towards decentralisation in the world’s fourth largest country by population? What are the intersections between slow tourism, diverse arts and culture and the movement of people across the archipelago in one of the fastest growing economies in the world?
