Cultural Currency

From Arts on Sunday, 12:42 pm on 13 May 2012

What does contemporary New Zealand look like when it's placed on the global arts stage and what is it worth? According to arts journalist Peter Brunt, it's the multicultural voice of Aotearoa that's reaching international waters. Sonia Sly speaks to actor and writer Jacob Rajan, musician Bella Kololo and visual artist Kerry Ann Lee, to find out how they view their ethnicity in the context of their art practice, and whether they use it as a form of currency to further their work here and abroad.
