Cultural Conversations is a unique cross-cultural exchange which overcomes the barrier of physical distance in order to celebrate the richness of cultural distance and difference.

Cultural Conversations is an online oral history archive of the visual arts in Australia and South Korea.

Oral history may not always be factually accurate, but it brings its own truth to our understanding of how a culture has been made. It brings the kind of texture that raw facts cannot supply. And it brings an emotional dimension only possible when someone speaks in their own voice of their own experience.

The project clearly has enormous international potential, both in taking Australian art to the world, but also in generating cross-cultural exchange.
