NFSA Livestream: Creativity in the Time of COVID
Join us online as we screen material that the NFSA acquired in 2020 to reflect the Australian COVID-19 experience.
Q: What do a foul-mouthed comedian, heart-warming romantic web series and a drag queen have in common?
A: Making content creatively and connecting people during a global pandemic!
When Australians went into lockdowns across the country in 2020, many creators found ways to connect with others, keep boredom at bay and survive a world where 'WFH', 'iso-date', 'sanny' and 'zoombombing' became staples of our new language.
Over the last year, the NFSA has collected a diverse range of materials reflecting how Aussies created, shared and consumed audiovisual material whilst surviving the COVID-19 pandemic.
Across this collection, one unifying theme shines through: the power of creativity to connect, inspire and foster care.
