SEA Currents

In a world of shifting and contested borders, how is Southeast Asia represented and understood? What are the undercurrents that pull the region together and push it apart? How have the trajectories of its past shaped its present and future?

SEA Currents is a 3 day mini-festival for Southeast Asian art in London, helmed by a collective of artists, curators and researchers. We hope to connect this rapidly evolving region with the city of London, itself a convergence of many different cultures and a significant Southeast Asian presence.

The inaugural SEA Currents multi-site festival was presented at the SOAS Khalili Lecture Theatre, Live Art Development Agency, as well as a karaoke restaurant in Deptford.

This year’s SEA Currents from 8-10 March 2019 presents a programme of film screenings, presentations and conversations in partnership with Asia-Art-Activism and Something Human, with the kind support of Arts Council England and Raven Row.

Tickets are free, but due to limited capacity, registration is necessary. Please book:
