In partnership with the Victorian Government,
we are bringing our global community together with local members and supporters for a night of celebration.
Inspired by the Hawker centres of South East Asia where flavour, culture and ideas collide and coexist, Hawker Ball will celebrate the rich diversity of heritage, story, sound and taste that make up Asia and the deep personal ties that connect Australia to this region.
Over 400 guests will be addressed by the Premier of Victoria Daniel Andrews
; Asia Society Global CEO and President, Ambassador Josette Sheeran
; Australia’s High Commissioner to India, Her Excellency Ms Harinder Sidhu
; Australian political and business leaders, and game-changers of Australia-Asia engagement under the stained-glass ceiling of the National Gallery of Victoria’s Great Hall.
Hawker Ball is set to the backdrop of NGV’s Winter Masterpieces, a dual presentation of the ancient Terracotta Warriors alongside a display of new works by one of the world’s most exciting contemporary artists, Cai Guo-Qiang. Views of the exhibit will be available to guests on the night.
