About this Speaker
Rani Pramesti is a proud Peranakan-Tionghoa-Javanese person with roots in Indonesia, Kulin Country (Melbourne) and Ohlone Country (San Francisco). Like many in the arts, Rani wears many hats: as an intercultural producer, an independent storyteller and public speaker, as well as an advocate for cultural equity.
Since graduating from the Victorian College of Arts in 2013, Rani has dedicated herself to collaborations with underrepresented groups in the arts, working inter-sectionally with people of colour, First Nations communities and people who live with disability.
In 2019, after a series of challenging experiences navigating the predominantly white Australian arts sector, Rani led a research process interviewing creative people of colour. Rani’s research focused on pinpointing the problems shared by creatives of colour in trying to forge their careers in a white arts world. The findings informed what would become Creatives of Colour: an online platform and shared space by creative people of colour, for creative people of colour.
