In a world of shifting and contested borders, how is Southeast Asia represented and understood? What are the undercurrents that pull the region together and push it apart? How have the trajectories of its past shaped its present and future?

SEA Currents is a platform for Southeast Asian art in London, helmed by a collective of artists, curators and researchers. We hope to connect this rapidly evolving region with the city of London, itself a convergence of many different cultures and a significant Southeast Asian presence.

The inaugural SEA Currents multi-site festival was presented at the SOAS Khalili Lecture Theatre, Live Art Development Agency, as well as a karaoke restaurant in Deptford.

This year, SEA Currents will be popping up from 8-10 March 2019 at Asia-Art-Activism at Raven Row, with a programme of film screenings, presentations and conversations.

Tickets are free, but due to limited capacity, registration is necessary. Please book:
