SeeChange 2020

Creativity and resilience win out (again) SeeChange 2020 is going digital!

The web environment here will soon begin to show signs of the new architecture needed to house the SeeChange 2020 exhibition gallery and shop, and spaces to discover films, podcasts, arts webinars, creative exercises, learning materials and other new SeeChange stuff!

Please join us this winter for SeeChange 2020 Digital – coming to a device near you!

If ever a SeeChange Festival embodied its name, it certainly is this year.

First, in response to the flow on impacts of the summer’s bush fires, this year’s festival was changed to be a smaller and simpler format than recent years. And now, in response to the impacts of COVID-19, there is no longer any form of physical festival in June, instead two major elements of SeeChange 2020 are going digital!

Making Community Exhibition and People’s Choice Award that would have been held at Sandholme Guesthouse will move into an online gallery here on the SeeChange Festival website.

Visitors to the digital exhibition will still be able to revel in the creativity of members of the Jervis Bay and Basin Arts group; browse and buy a diverse range of visual art, small sculpture and crafted objects; support local artists and makers with every purchase, and vote in the People’s Choice Award for the work they most admire.

Present Now the multi-faceted arts project that would have been housed at Huskisson Community Centre will become a collection of innovative digital experiences.

The Present Now collective of 20 visual artists, sculptors, fibre artists, dancers, musicians, performers and poets are creating new ways to collaborate, blend their practices and produce digital experiences to surprise the eyes, stimulate the mind, and make the heart sing. So, while visitors currently cannot travel to our beautiful locations in and around Jervis Bay, our artists will bring our beautiful locations to visitors, wherever they are!

Jervis Bay and Basin Arts is delighted this bold and exciting move with SeeChange 2020 is fully supported by Shoalhaven Tourism.

What’s happening behind the scenes

As you might expect it is a big project to redesign and reshape a 10 day physical arts festival into a collection of innovative, engaging digital experiences. There is much excitement among the artists and performers who are energised by the possibilities that SeeChange 2020 Digital presents and already busy experimenting and breaking new creative ground. The festival director and curator are also in new terrain, exploring and learning along the way.
