What does the next generation of art look like? Darebin Arts Speakeasy gave ten emerging artists aged 15 – 25 the keys to Northcote Town Hall Arts Centre for Let’s Take Over. They’re taking over and bringing you something you’ll never forget on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 February 2021.
The 2021 Let’s Take Over Participants are: Amarachi Okorom, Anna Charalambous, Casper Plum, Elijah Eastley, Guy Ritani, Kenita Bush, Lauren Rosenberg, Lulu Fitz, Michaela Mulenga and Rhoda Makur.
Experience their participatory artworks – from questions about perspective, colonisation, language, climate anxiety, mental health, gender and what it’s like to be a teen in 2021. You’ll witness everything from film, performance, poetry, grocery shopping – heck, you might even be able to do some laundry!
Let’s Take Over participants have been given professional development through a series of guest speakers over several months, a budget and support to create and produce their own monumental arts event.
All participants are paid and develop skills covering marketing, budgeting, programming and curation. Participants come from different worlds with their own unique skill sets, art forms and life experiences.
Let’s Take Over takes place at the Northcote Town Hall Arts Centre: 19 – 20 February 2021. For more information, visit: www.darebinarts.com.au for details.
