art

We make art about the things we most wish to remember; we externalise them in the best ways we know how.

Great art stays with us because it conveys a fragment of the human experience in such a way that it can be re-framed and re-accessed by others. In that sense, art is an act of sharing; art is collaborative memory.

Art is the core of our culture. We should therefore be prepared to protect our art with the same rigour we would muster to protect our countries; because if we don’t, there won’t be much left to protect.

COVID-19 has forced many folks to reinvent their core business, which has been especially challenging for live performance artists and theatre makers.

How do you distill the ambiance of a theatre into something digestible on screen, without the budget of The Royal Shakespeare Company? Whose shows you can (and should) watch online, by the way.

It’s prime time to find a local artist you wish to support and subscribe to them on their platform of choice, but it’s also time for artists to reimagine the wheel.

The rules are changing and in all chaos lives opportunity.

It’s up to us to sieze it.
