The Maven project is about creating a hub for creativity, imagination, collaboration, learning, skills, cultural exchange and community. Professional Aboriginal artists, working as artistic leaders and teachers develop a new multidisciplinary Australian work. The project unlocks the potential of young emerging artists from across regional NSW. Music, dance, physical theatre, film and design are all a part of the new works created, as young people reimagine their future.
The Maven Project places Aboriginal artists at the centre of the creation of this work within their community. Central to its delivery is the recognition of and respect for Aboriginal people’s custodianship over their intellectual property; allowing and supporting them to be in charge of how their work is created and how it is presented to the Australian community. Ultimately, we want to support these artists to collaborate with other artists and companies beyond our current reach, captivating national and global audiences and expanding the profile of their work.
