Event description

Description

The discourse around ‘millennial burnout culture’ has rarely discussed the difficulties young people face in building sustainable creative careers. More and more artists are sustaining serious practice by holding down a second job and balancing the demands of their art with the necessity of putting bread on the table. With a whole generation of Australian artists experiencing these difficulties, an understanding of the effects on their work will be essential to forming effective future arts policy.

SAMAG has convened a group of young creatives at various stages of their careers to discuss the impact these challenges have had on their work. In a series of ‘true monologues’ from the artists, they will discuss how they balance personal wellbeing with the pressures of working in the arts.
