About the event

Creative Catalyst Series: 

In partnership with the Belvoir St Theatre, one of Australia's most renowned theatre companies, the Australian Tamil Professional Association is proud to present  the Creative Catalyst Series. You'll have full access to pick S. Shakthidharan’s brain in an intimate fireside chat, followed by a Q&A and Networking session, after which you will be escorted to your allocated seats.

Art and creativity in Tamil culture are deeply intertwined with our history, spirituality, social fabric, and identity. We are proud to see more and more Tamil Australians venture into creative industries as their full-time career. Here at ATPA, it is our mission to ensure that we can provide you with the right tools to make that journey a successful one.

We all have a story worth telling. Let us help you take that story to the mainstage.

What to Expect

S. Shakthidharan will provide unique insights into the life of a professional ‘creative’, cultivating the skill of storytelling, breaking into the creative industry and developing a strong creative process. As a Tamil man in the not-so diverse Australian theatre industry, S. Shakthidharan has carved himself a meaningful space to do what he does best - sharing stories of the Tamil diaspora. In exploring what’s worked and what hasn’t, S. Shakthidharan will provide aspiring ‘creatives’ with advice on how to take their story to the mainstage.
