The Changing World: Asian Century

Venue: Manning Clarke Theatre 1, Australian National University (ANU), Canberra ACT 2600

Asian Century

India and Australia share much in common as vibrant, functioning, multicultural democracies. Additionally, curry and cricket have facilitated lasting bonds between the two. Toss in some sweet and sour Chinese, some kimchi and sushi, and we have a heady mix! Demographic projections show that in less than a decade, half the world’s population will be living in Asia. Our two continents, once a single land-mass, currently share a healthy exchange of clay-stories; the Asian shadow being omnipresent. Language will now be the strongest bridge. And clay. Let’s bridge emotional distances across Gondwana with 3D printers, butter chicken, cricket and clay!
