THE COMMUNITY READING ROOM

ART / CULTURE / IDENTITY / BOOKS
FROM MARGIN TO CENTRE.

The Community Reading Room (CRR) is a pop-up destination for research, community discussion and engagement with ideas about art, culture and identity. The CRR is envisioned as a welcoming and inclusive space where the voices, lived-experiences and practices of marginalised communities are centred.

Founded by Fijian-Australian artist and academic Dr 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.

The Community Reading Room has been presented at:

Colour Box Studios, 2013
Footscray Community Arts Centre, 2013
Contemporary Pacific Arts Festival, 2014
Testing Grounds, 2017
Arts House, 2017

…and will return to Testing Grounds in 2019.
