Be You Inc: empowering youth in the arts - Media Release

Recently we launched a new grant initiative to provide financial assistance for disadvantaged and POC artists who are auditioning for tertiary performing arts programs this year. After just over a week and half of our GoFundMe page going live we reached over $10,000 in donations. We're now at a crucial point in our grant campaign; sharing the information about how to apply with as many places as possible so that the funds can reach the young artists who could benefit from them the most. We're currently running a national reach out campaign and would love it if your publication would be able to be a part of amplifying our message and getting the word out.

It certainly is capable of immersing you in the subject matter so that after some time you feel calmed and soothed and come away feeling changed. Three artists who know the magic of the interplay between what they see and what they feel, and translate their response into beautiful art, are joining forces in an upcoming Redcliffe exhibition.

Fire and Brimstone: Therese Ritchie, Chips Mackinolty, Todd Williams & Djon Mundine

BY The Cross Art Projects | 24-Aug-2020
Fire and Brimstone

The exhibition Fire & Brimstone casts a watching eye over the corporations and individuals who continue to choose profit over people and climate catastrophe. Before there was a virus crisis, many expert reports warned of the need to close the inequality gap. The reports all pointed to our declining health, life expectancy and rising numbers of preventable deaths; especially in prisons, aged care and rural and remote communities which, in Australia, largely comprise First Nations peoples. The most shocking work in Fire & Brimstone is 'Kumanjayi', Chips Mackinolty's stark red and black text memorial to the 437 black deaths in custody since the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody (Report 1996). Very few of its 330 recommendations have been implemented. Every year, Aboriginal people continue to die in custody. Mackinolty's work is subtitled, "and still counting".
