IGNITE: Social

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and multiple closures across Canberra, IGNITE: Social has been transitioned to digital spaces, where all our artists can continue to make art and connect from the comfort and safety of their own home. Online learning and connection will take place using our private IGNITE Facebook group. IGNITE: Social is now bi-monthly, every second Friday from 11am. We will continue to monitor the changing developments and go out in the community when it is safe and best to do so.

IGNITE: Social aims to extend the cultural participation of IGNITE: Alternative Arts Academy participants and improve their access and inclusion in the arts as makers and viewers. IGNITE: Social draws on the skills, interests and experiences of all to create a curated series of social and creative exchanges that introduce participants to the Canberra arts and cultural sector, including shared gallery visits, live music and theatre experiences. IGNITE: Social aims to provide supported access and first-hand experience, build awareness and confidence, and share information on existing networks and the wider arts community.
