Welcome! We’d love your feedback!!

The Arts Front Platform is in live beta testing in 2020. The development team are working on it right now. The full Arts Front system will be launched in November. Please take a look around and feel free to try things out. Features will continue to change and develop but any content you create (profiles, events, groups, actions, reports) can stay in the system.

Your content always belongs to you in Arts Front. You can delete your profile and content at any time.

If you have a question or you see something that’s broken or you have ideas for new features or improvements we would love to hear from you.

Madhubala LIFE

I am based in London and (have) work(ed) across multiple roles in film and theatre making. I'm currently doing a research degree looking at the social, technological and financial infrastructures that enabled experimental filmmaking in India from the 1930s to the 1970s. I'm convinced from my historical research - and, frankly, from my actual life - that artists need to grapple with their material conditions far more directly and far more assertively, if we're to have any hope of enacting any redistributive and democratising goals. I'm involved with some new-ish political education projects in the UK, e.g. left-leaning reading groups for actors and theatre-makers, and the level of basic literacy around economic questions is depressingly and debilitatingly low. (My own illiteracy included...)

An online symposium exploring ideas of basic income and the need for an approach to economy that puts creativity and care at its centre. Led by a panel of artists, researchers, economists, scientists and philosophers, the symposium responds to current and ongoing planetary crises, and positions creativity and social ecology as integral to shaping policy and systems of value.

The Symposium is a joint initiative of Arts Front, BLINDSIDE and Next Wave and was supported by the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grants.
