In this part of the Archive we have brought together our regular and iterative festival programmes from the past 20 years. A key part of our regular programming, these festivals emerge out of and through our ongoing work with local organising, research, one off events, conversations and experiments, representing the cumulation of many years of Arika activities.

International Projects & Collaborations

International collaboration has been part of our work and programming from the early days, including touring performances to New York back in 2005. Since then we were invited to curate a programme for the 2012 Whitney Biennial, resulting in "A Survey is a Process of Listening" which planted the seeds of fruitful friendships and solidarity with groups, activists and scholars in North America that continue to this day.
