Usually around this time MAV would be excited to open submissions for EOIs for Mapping Melbourne 2020.
Given the current circumstances with COVID-19, how we move forward programming for future events in 2020 is under discussion.
As such, the EOI call out for Mapping Melbourne 2020 is postponed and we may need to develop a new process that is more adaptable to a short roll out time frame for when we all receive the go ahead to start planning public events again.
In this time of social distancing we are acutely aware of the situation for artists whose creative practices and incomes are being severely impacted by COVID-19. As well as the devastating impact on artists’ livelihoods, the isolation is likely to have a far-reaching effect on individuals’ mental health and wellbeing. Our office is closed but we are still here and contactable so please stay in touch.
