Your Guide To What's On – Things To Do In Sydney, Australia

Isolate Make: Creative Resilience in a Pandemic

Isolate Make explores how creative practice has adapted to isolation, associated restrictions and production challenges, or simply in response to the tragic global events.

The arts and creative industries have been hit hard this year with opportunities to exhibit and sell work limited by closures and restrictions.

With the support of a City of Sydney Cultural Resilience Grant, Australian Design Centre invited nine creative practitioners from Sydney to participate in a new project called Isolate Make: Creative Resilience in a Pandemic. We worked closely with all nine individuals to unpack the impact this year has had on their practice.

Through images, text, video and final work on exhibition Isolate Make gives a unique insight into a wide range of contemporary art, craft and design practices.

Glenn Barkley | Crossing Threads | Kathy Elliott | Benja Harney | Liz Payne | Donna Sgro | Lucy Simpson | Melinda Young
