Creative Recovery and Resilience Forum

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

8.1. Consultation has demonstrated that there is a strong need in the local arts sector to connect and share skills and experience as we explore emergent opportunities and continue recovery from COVID. A forum will provide a much-needed context to connect across disciplines, career stages and contexts, contributing to the ongoing growth of a well-networked, more resilient sector. This project will pilot a sector-wide broad-based forum that may continue as a sector-led initiative in future.
8.2. The Forum will include a series of at least 9 activities including talks, workshops, work in development showings, conversations as well as presentation opportunities for artists participating in the other CRRP projects. In this way, the Forum will act as a platform to underpin and provide context to the other CRRP projects. Forum topics will be developed in line with the overall CRRP program framework described above and will respond to the arts sectors priorities for discussion, skill development and advocacy. Local artists, arts workers and arts professionals will be engaged to deliver Forum activities.
8.3. The Forum will include a writer-in-residence who will write critically about the emergent issues and ideas raised in Forum activities as a creative evaluation strategy and means of providing a growth opportunity for Canberra’s small critical arts writing community.
8.4. Forum activities will take place across 6 months a range of times, dates, and locations to be determined by the successful respondent in collaboration with artsACT. Activities will take place across the ACT and may also be delivered virtually to ensure access and inclusion. Forum activities will be documented and archived on the artsACT website to create a reference and resource bank.
8.5. Participation in the Forum will be free. Participation in forum activities will be open to artists from across career stages, disciplines, and backgrounds.
