It is quite common to see movies from an era long gone where women are sitting quietly embroidery doilies or clothes, painting in the gardens, photography and more. My grandmother made the most beautiful crochet, embroidery and knitting ultimately handing down the craft. Art and creative pursuits will always be a way of expressing yourself and your surroundings.

The Arts & Culture North Sydney present a series of exhibitions through March in a small or large scale, which are held across five Council venues. These exhibitions showcase sculpture, painting, drawings, printmaking, photography, new media, textiles, basketry, paper making and contemporary jewellery. This year, Arts & Culture North Sydney have invited one hundred and fifty artists and groups to contribute to a board range of programmes in a major collaborative curatorial initiative titled – .

Not only will the project showcase the breadth of individual and collective creativity in the region, but it is also asking artists to share their stories and creations through the last twelve months of COVID isolation. 2020 saw a significant shift in the way we all engaged and connected with others, either through small group gatherings or zoom meetings and we also had to come to terms with the boundaries of being bound to home.

We came upon a new norm, one that some had never encountered before. Those artists who were invited to participate in this project responded with enthusiasm as it presented an opportunity to articulate how they coped during unprecedented times. Home to some was comforting and peaceful, but to others it was unfamiliar with family meals and conversations a new experience. Some now finding going back into the office strange. Each artist brings a different perspective and a different relationship to the year just gone.
