Sydney Mardi Gras board proposes change to constitution | How has the Melbourne arts community survived the long lockdown? | The Informer – 4 Nov 2021
– The board of Sydney Mardi Gras has proposed changes to its constitution that would mean a significant portion of the board is appointed by other board members, not elected by the organisation’s members. The motion will be put to a vote at an upcoming general meeting. Some in the organisation are critical of the proposal, namely the activist group, Pride in Protest.
– As Victoria comes out of what is hopefully its last significant lockdown, the usually vibrant arts scene is coming out of an 18+ month shutdown. We speak with some performance artists about how they’ve coped, what it’s like coming out of such a long shutdown, and what we as a community can potentially learn from how we adapted and changed to deal with restrictions.
