Volcanic Winds is an arts organisation dedicated to experimental and inter-disciplinary practices from Australia and Asia. We create work at the intersection of contemporary art, sound and performance in response to these rapidly evolving art scenes, reflecting their artistic shifts. Driven by highly collaborative practices, our creative outputs take many forms resulting in performances, exhibitions, artistic action, workshops and discussions.

In addition to this, Volcanic Winds hosts residencies and brokers creative partnerships aimed at fostering engagement with Asia. We do this by working in partnership with a diverse range of artists and organisations between our two active sites in Yogyakarta and Naarm / Birraranga (Melbourne).

Volcanic Winds acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and create, the Wurundjeri, Boon Wurrung, Ngunnawal and Ngambri people. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Sovereignty was never ceded.
