The theme “identity” is intentional both with respect to the artistic possibilities it offers, and also as a way of recognising the importance and centrality that identity plays in our everyday politics. This political dynamic will be a prominent and visible strand that will impact all dynamics of the gathering.

• 3 minute max for each
