Six artists lead the ranks on the quest for social change with works highlighting cultural awareness, Indigenous rights, freedom of speech, social justice, gender equality, diversity and racism. Carnival of the Bold showcases a mix of talks and performances that will captivate, challenge and inspire you, and also connect you with others who care about a better world. 

Carnival of the Bold 2016 Line Up includes:

  • MC Trey: Hip Hop Artist & Social Activist
  • Zunar: Malaysian Cartoonist
  • George Gittoes: Visual Artist & Filmmaker
  • Bindi Cole Chocka: Artist, Writer & Curator
  • Abdul Abdullah: Visual Artist & Radio Host
  • Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa: Spoken Word Artist
Artists bring interesting and unique perspectives to the mix, and engage audiences in new and different ways. They can strongly influence the way the world frames or feels about salient issues; a power not fully harnessed. 
Carnival of the Bold aims to be an enabling force for social change - calling on artists to take leadership and for everyone to participate and live with greater humanity. It celebrates artists who have used their art to enrich our cultural identity, explore shared values, spark imagination and empower communities. Through Carnival of the Bold, we aspire to find new ways, new ideas and new narratives that will shape our world and future.
Carnival of the Bold will be an Auslan Interpreted Event. You are advised to contact the Seymour Centre for Auslan or access seating locations. Carnival of the Bold is part of the Great Ideas Performance Series 2016 at Seymour Centre.
