For an insight into how critics formulate their responses to performances, join senior Thai critic, Pawit Mahasarinand and other critics from Southeast Asia, in a post-show conversation about Checkpoint Theatre's Displaced Persons' Welcome Dinner written by Huzir Sulaiman. This critics-led discussion will bring a regional perspective to the work, a SIFA commission, by one of Singapore's leading theatre companies. Organised by ArtsEquator.com as part of the Asian Arts Media Roundtable. For more details, www.artsequator.com/aamr.

Asian Arts Media Roundtable24 - 25 May 2019, Fri – Sat
F309, LASALLE College of the Art
The Asian Arts Media Roundtable is a two-day meeting of arts editors, publishers, reviewers, arts journalists, critics, bloggers, podcasters, videocasters, academics and arts makers from Southeast Asia, East Asia and Asia-Pacific. Presented by ArtsEquator, the Roundtable is the first step towards establishing a network of arts media organisations and individual arts writers in the region that will have multiple impacts across the creation, discourse and consumption of the arts. There will be two sessions open to the public: a panel discussion on the role of arts media, and a public post-show discussion following Checkpoint Theatre's Displaced Persons' Welcome Dinner written by Huzir Sulaiman.
