A thriving creative sector is vital for innovation, sustainability and social inclusion, yet the COVID-19 pandemic caused a monumental upheaval for the industry, reducing work for artists and curators. Despite facing ‘the unknown’ as a result of the pandemic, the duo decided to find a way to keep the sector alive in Brisbane.
The pair help create artist-led economic stimulus projects that aim to foster a new culture of citizen philanthropy within the community through their initiative, Chrysalis Projects. Designed to celebrate place, Chrysalis Projects employs the creative workforce, energises local businesses, and reconnects the community – one project at a time. In this episode, they share stories about how their work has impacted the local community, their passion for the creative sector, and a new perspective on making art in the public realm.
