It’s the year 2020, COVID19 – lockdown, isolation, self-distancing, 2m apart, pandemic, crisis, unprecedented times, uncertain future, gloves, masks, life on hold, queuing, standing still.
Obviously, 2020 hasn’t gone to plan. But we all have a chance to reimagine… not just 2020 but our futures beyond.
But should things just go back to normal when we are released from lockdown?
Have some things changed for the better?
How would you reimagine the world differently when all this is over? How will it work?
Submitting a creative response and signing up regular updates and new ideas.
How do I share my creative response?
We are looking to recruit six teams of 10 people aged 16-25 who live within 15 miles of Derby city centre. Each team will work in collaboration with one of six leading specialist artists, collectively specialising in the areas of writing and performing, devising and theatre making, film making, dance and movement, music and virtual graffiti to create their response around the theme #Reimagine2020. Together, you will work over 5 weeks to develop your ideas over WhatsApp and weekly zoom sessions. The final pieces will then be shared and celebrated across a range of cultural platforms, regionally and nationally, with support from Arts Council England.
