A New Era for Five Arts Centre

For close to four decades now, Five Arts Centre has been creating, experimenting and educating. Known for their interdisciplinary, and intercultural work, the collective have been bringing social, political, and cultural issues to the stage, through performances, exhibitions, creative seminars, research workshops and arts advocacy. They recently moved to a new space, and as they put it, "have been navigating some significant changes recently." On today's episode of Good Things, we look back at Five Arts Centre's history and long list of achievements, and find out some of their plans for the future, with June Tan and Mark Teh, who are both arts practitioners, activists and members of Five Arts Centre.
