Asia Triennial

  • Katie Popperwell

Programme Director, Asia Triennial 2018, Manchester School of Art's citywide multi-venue festival of contemporary art on the theme of Asia. The Festival explored Asian identities through a diverse programme of performances, exhibitions, film, workshops and special events by contemporary visual artists at fourteen venues across Greater Manchester, including a one-day symposium Who do you think you are? and a public parade led by Chinese performance artist Han Bing. I devised the programme with artistic director Alnoor Mitha, managed multiple international stakeholders, and delivered the festival with a team of four freelance producers, a marketing officer and volunteers.
