Hi, also here from Turrbal and Jagera country. Hello

WE WOULD LOVE YOUR QUESTIONS!

Lenine Bourke
01:20:22
i wonder if that work is happening privately rather than as a group of sectors? Not sure but its an interesting observation I’m seeing
Bong Ramilo
01:21:20
I think we have to (again and always) talk about what we mean by 'artist'. A lot of talk has been about people who work in the arts industry, which could mean arts workers. Artists include those who make art not as workers in the industry but as worke
Kevin Brennan
01:21:41
I love Alex’s point about arts workers needing to get out of silos. Are we averse to it?
Alex Kelly echotango.org

Bong Ramilo
01:22:23
... Workers in other industries. Or just Community members who make art. For some of us in the "community sector" making art is just one of the things we do to build community.
Feral Arts
01:22:42
Important conversation an artist led economy coming up on May 28 - https://artsfront.com/event/42372-artist-led-economy-basic-income-and-the-case-for-a-freed-future.
Lenine Bourke
01:22:51
i keep asking artists what kind of work they want to make now and lots of people are struggling to answer this… I think that poverty and stress make it really difficult
Alex Kelly echotango.org
01:22:54
100% Bong!
Elliott Bledsoe
01:23:54
Face masks.
Lenine Bourke
01:24:06
I agree Bong -
Kevin Brennan
01:24:16
@Bong Spot on. Is that work with communities also about reaching out to other communities?
Feral Arts
01:26:05
We need to build stronger connections between the arts and other sectors - not just for advocacy but for everything we do
Ilka
01:26:45
Martin Shaw - incredible Mythteller, shared at the beginning of this pandemic, it is like a global initiation, and if compared to a rites of passage, would be the moment when we take stillness, to listen, and not to rush to find a way out, a way of hearing earth/land/waters which are more difficult to hear in times of ‘volume’ - and I felt there was something integral in this for artists.
Bong Ramilo
01:26:49
Kevin, I think so, and it could happen more. Refugees make art. So do hospitality workers. And parents. Making art is everyone's right, and issues to do with art making cut across sectors. We can build solidarity around these issues, arts issues and community issues.
Leah Barclay
01:27:26
Yeah agree Ferals, thanks Alex and Jen – inspiring work, totally agree it's time to get out of our silos, what do you think are the best ways to do that? (especially with all the funding challenges) attending conferences/symposiums/focus groups/community actions etc so there is a creative voice at the table?
Feral Arts
01:28:13
If artists lead the advocacy for other parts of the community advocacy for the arts sector takes care of itself
Robbie McEwan
01:28:34
Also interested in solidarity within the arts sector. The MEAA has been doing a good job speaking to all workers. But the state government and the sector itself has centred ‘creatives’ and left technicians and support staff largely out of the picture.
annedunn
01:29:01
What a relief to listen to a focus on community, values and leadership
Bong Ramilo
01:30:59
Thank you, Alex, Ken, Ferals, and all.
