Creativity in the time of COVID

Exhibition and Shows

13 May 2021 Once Only Event

Join the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) online as they screen some of the NFSA’s most recently acquired material reflecting the Australian COVID-19 experience. An exclusive Q&A discussion session will follow with exciting guest speakers.

What do a foul-mouthed comedian, heart-warming romantic web series and a drag queen have in common? Creatively creating content and connecting people during a global pandemic!

When Australians went into lockdowns across the country in 2020, many found ways to connect with others, keep boredom at bay and survive a world where “WFH”, “iso-date”, “sanny” and “zoombombing” became staples of our new language. Over the last year, the NFSA has collected a diverse range of acquisitions reflecting how Aussies created, shared and consumed audiovisual material whilst surviving the COVID-19 pandemic. Across this collection, one unifying theme shines through: the power of creativity to connect, inspire and foster care.
