The Big Anxiety – Takeover

RMIT Culture2

Event Date: 15 October 2022
Author / Presenters: The Big Anxiety

Young artists from Outer Urban Projects, The Social Studio and Youthworx will team up with international students to present works that activate Melbourne’s public spaces during The Big Anxiety.

Young, culturally diverse people have been impacted by the pandemic including the public housing towers lockdown, racialised and heavy handed police enforcement of restrictions, barriers to homeschooling due to limited access to personal computers and reliable internet, as well as disruptions to casual and precarious employment. Conversely, the last year has also seen an eruption of youth-led creative community organising, mutual aid and inventive public protests in response to the global COVID pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Takeover will showcase the talented contributions of our young emerging artists and their communities. It will challenge the stereotypes and stigma directed at young people and instead promote diverse and unique perspectives, creative skills and aspirations for a better, diverse city post-pandemic.
