COVID-19 has compelled Australian and international arts organisations to think differently about how they connect with the interdependent creative communities they  are part of. In partnership with the Tanja Liedtke Foundation, Chunky Move has redesigned our 2020 program to facilitate artistic exploration within this newly complex social and spatial framework and provide urgent, paid creative opportunities for independent artists.
Solitude 1 is a new program initiative responding to these changed circumstances. Reflecting our commitment to creative pluralitySolitude 1 will provide funded creative research opportunities for 10 artistsThe research undertaken as part of Solitude 1 will have the potential to be further realised as part of a new Chunky Move work, Secret Gardens. Featuring numerous small works, Secret Gardens is a major collaborative project that will be overseen by Chunky Move’s Artistic Director, Antony Hamilton, and developed collaboratively with the commissioned artists over the coming years.
