What is on offer?
MAV is inviting expressions of interest from writers, visual artists, music and sound producers, songwriters and composers to create new works that can be shared online for Shelter.
Shelter is a new MAV produced initiative that will reflect on and respond to this unique moment in time in which we find ourselves confined to our own homes.
For some home is a safe space and for some it is a dangerous place.
For most of us now, home is a place of isolation, uncertainty, challenge, or even crisis.
We are all explorers right now, navigating physical and mental spaces of not knowing, renegotiating our relationships to home and each other, reframing our “shelter in” experience from being a personal disruption to a quest for collective wellbeing, and trying to imagine the new normal beyond pandemic.
Shelter is a paid opportunity for 40 diverse artists who have walked paths of struggle before, who have resources, insights and resilience to offer, who are voices that may nourish and guide us during these times of forced change.
Shelter will offer story, song, sound, imagery and ideas, that draw on diverse cultures, identities, experiences, knowledges and creativity, and that may provoke new questions and meaning as we strive to find new ways of being. The works will be released on the MAV website and social media throughout the Winter season.
