Opportunity For Pacific Dreaming In American Samoa

Opportunity for Pacific dreaming in American Samoa

Australia Council for the Arts is looking for Indigenous dancers, musicians, actors, writers and visual artists to join Australia's delegation to the 2008 Festival of Pacific Arts.

The festival, in American Samoa from July 20 2008, is a rare opportunity to showcase the diversity and strength of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures to the Pacific.

The delegation will join participants from 27 Pacific Island nations in a 10-day program of events including performances, presentations and forums.

Applications to join the Australian delegation close on December 19, 2007. For more information visit

The Pacific community created the Festival of Pacific Arts in 1972 to stop the erosion of traditional customary practices. It will celebrate the tenth festival in 2008.
