Art In Isolation
During the pandemic, we worked non-stop to gather funds from a range of sources, and then direct them straight to Artists, paired with free space, to provide paid residencies to artists across art forms. Our Art In Isolation residencies began in September 2021 and continued throughout the month.
Our Donors Circle and The Inner West Council contributed to funding the residencies, and 5 Eliza and The Old 505 contributed to housing artists.
If you would like to contribute funds or space to the programme please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to open a conversation.
Made In Sydney Program
Our long-planned Made In Sydney program had it’s first year in 2020 – somewhat adapted for the lockdown climate! Through this program, we fostered and invested in leading Sydney-made independent work, provided artists and ensembles with the opportunity to dive deep into the practice, present it in their home environment and then take it to the world.
In 2020 we supported five Sydney companies & creators to make new work or adapt a previous work – either for film, or for a hybrid screen & in-person presentation. In 2022, we supported three local Sydney woman present three unique and innovative monologues, all pivoting around their experience as a woman in the world, whether that was through sex toys, music or clowning.
The works are featured within the Global Fringe program, and some will be presented in a digital tour to Stockholm Fringe, Brighton Fringe, Melbourne Fringe and more to be confirmed.
Expressions of interest for the 2023 Made In Sydney program will open in early April.
First Nations Program Consultation
We have continued our community consultation towards our inaugural First Nations program to take place in 2022. Over the coming months, First Nations leaders and community will be leading the planning, and we’ll be facilitating the rollout, of a dedicated program by and for First Nations artists and audiences.
