Community Reading Room

The Community Reading Room (CRR) is a pop-up destination for research, community discussion and engagement around art, culture and identity. 

The CRR is envisioned as a safe-space for individuals who identify as First Nations and people of colour to encounter texts that acknowledge and place their lived experience and practice at the centre, rather than the margin. 

Founded by Fijian-Australian artist and academic Torika Bolatagici in 2013, the CRR is an ongoing discursive project that invites the general public to consider the inclusivity of public spaces and to contemplate how our institutions of knowledge privilege particular ways of knowing and being.

In 2017 the CRR was in-residence at Testing Grounds and Arts House.
