Traction is a four-part discussion series that examines ideas of modification and renewal within creative practice, the needs for upholding artist’s rights, the power of mature knowledge, and new modes of education and exchange.

Pivot is a discussion between artists / arts organisations who have had to pivot their art practice to come up with alternative creative solutions in-light of changing opportunities at this time.

Accumulate is a discussion around free / accessible new models of learning and sharing in the arts.

Gain, explores what a visual arts union in Australia would look like, the push toward a more equitable visual arts sector, and why collective action is pivotal to this process.

Prime is a conversation around notions of matriarchal power and maturity within the arts.

Overview

Under the umbrella title of Traction, Blindside presents four artist-focused professional development online presentations: Pivot, Accumulate, Gain and Prime.

This program takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded - this land is stolen land. We pay respects to Wurundjeri Elders, past, present and emerging, to the Elders from other communities and to any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders who might encounter or participate in the program.
